NG ADVANTAGE DONATES 150 THANKSGIVING PACKAGES TO COMMUNITY CENTER, CALLS ON OTHER LOCAL BUSINESSES TO HELP THOSE IN NEED
The Milton Family Community Center Empowers Local Families and Individuals by Fostering a Sense of Belonging This Thanksgiving Season
Milton, VT As part of its ongoing efforts to help its neighbors, NG Advantage is donating 150 Thanksgiving Packages to the Milton Family Community Center, and urging other local businesses and organizations to join in the spirit of giving during the holiday season to help those who are less fortunate. This donation will comprise half the Milton Family Community Center’s overall goal of 300 Thanksgiving packages. NG's natural gas terminal is located in Milton.
“NG Advantage recognizes the significant impact made when we can contribute to the good work our local community organizations do for our neighbors in need,” said NG Advantage CEO Rico Biasetti. “We also call on our partners in the business community to join us in the spirit of giving, and urge them to support these key programs that so many local residents rely on not only during the holidays, but year-round.”
“We focus on empowering families and individuals by providing crucial and accessible services, while also fostering a sense of belonging for our neighbors in the community,” said Vikki Patterson, Executive Director of Milton Family Community Center. “NG Advantage’s generous donation helps provide Thanksgiving dinners for residents who otherwise would not be able to afford a traditional holiday celebration.”
The Milton Family Community Center’s mission is to build strong communities through empowering individuals and families with access to innovative services and programs. The Community Center organizes food donations for their emergency food shelf, facilitates full-day/full-year preschool programs for toddlers and infants, and offers after-school childcare. Through these and other crucial financial and social support services, the Community Center serves 150 families every month, and relies on the generosity of their volunteers, residents, and local businesses to ensure that these families and individuals have food on their table and the support they deserve.
“NG Advantage is hoping today’s donation helps spur a ripple effect that encourages other local businesses and organizations to donate their time and the resources to allow these worthy causes to flourish,” said Biasetti.
The Milton Family Community Center is still calling for Thanksgiving Packages donations to fulfill their goal of 300 packages. Each package includes turkey (or other meat), stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, vegetables, potatoes, sweet potatoes, biscuits, and dessert.
Today’s delivery is part of NG Advantage’s ongoing investment in the communities they serve. This week the company has also supported programs in Concord, New Hampshire, and Ticonderoga, New York.
