Griffin Gives Back to the Community

Holliston, MA – Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric), an electrical subcontractor throughout New England and the Southeast, has made donations to charities from its corporate headquarters and four regional office locations for the 2019 holiday season. 

Remaining connected to the communities in which employees work and live is important to the Griffin organization, and the team makes it a priority to give back to their neighbors with varying outreach activities and contributions throughout the year.

In New England, Griffin Electric worked directly with Anton’s Cleaners to collect new and gently used winter coats for those in need.  Employee donations exceeded 250 coats in men, women, children and infant sizes.  Supporting the Holliston Pantry Shelf as in years past, Griffin employees adopted families through the organization’s Mitten project, providing children with holiday gifts. They also supplied paper goods and non-perishable items to the food pantry.

 

Griffin’s Duluth, Ga. and Durham, N.C. regions sponsored a toy drive working directly with Toys for Tots.  Each region collected well over 250 toys for children in need from their office and field teams.  In Charlotte, N.C., Griffin employees also donated toys to less fortunate families, partnering with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for their annual Explorer Christmas Project.  In Pelham, Ala., Griffin Electric team members sponsored a canned food drive in conjunction with Vineyard Family Services, which provides food and support services to families in need.

Community ties continue to strengthen through the relationships formed with the charitable organizations Griffin Electric lends its support to each year.
