Holliston, MA – During the holiday season, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) donated $100,000 to several food pantries throughout New England and the Southeast. Griffin Electric and the employees throughout its corporate headquarters and regional office locations also participated in charitable causes that included toy, gift, and additional financial donations.
Continuing its annual tradition of supporting the Holliston Pantry Shelf, Griffin’s New England region adopted families through the organization’s Mitten project, providing local children with various holiday gifts. Office employees also collected donations to the food pantry, an organization that has provided food to Holliston residents in need at no charge since 1993.
In the Southeast, employees in Griffin’s Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and Duluth regions each partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Collectively, Griffin employees in these regions donated hundreds of toys for local kids in their respective areas.
While maintaining close ties to the community has always been embedded in the Griffin Electric culture, representatives of the company say they recognize that this past year has been particularly challenging and felt even more compelled to pay it forward to those in need.
