"COVID-19 has increased reliance on supportive food systems. It is vital we donate to food banks this year," says Christal Fleishman, Marketing Manager. "We are happy to do our small part to give back to our neighbors during this time." 

The 2020 campaign was launched via email, and one dollar was donated, to a local food bank, on behalf of every Agent that does business with NEEE. The total donation provided more than 900 Thanksgiving dinners to families throughout our region. 

We are pleased to make this donation possible through the following foodbanks: Vermont FoodbankNew Hampshire Food BankGood Shepherd Food Bank of MaineConnecticut Food BankRhode Island Community Food BankFeeding New York StateThe Greater Boston Food Bank, Central Pennsylvania Food BankOhio Association of Food Banks and the Maryland Food Bank

"Part of our corporate mission is to support the communities in which we do business," says Todd Wood, Vice President of Underwriting. "Our Thanksgiving campaign is one way we show this support. We also felt it was necessary to make the donation monetary. Thereby giving food banks the option to purchase items that are in highest demand."
