On Friday, May 25th, 23 volunteers from Liberty Utilities helped to clean up the oldest Boys & Girls Club camp in the county – Camp Welch. Owned and operated by the Fall River Boys & Girls Club in Assonet, MA (just north of the Fall River line), the camp has been open for 120 year. The employees helped with some landscaping work and some light cleaning, which Executive Director Peter McCarthy said was invaluable. “You really made my week and you’ve absolutely made a difference for the kids.”
On May 22nd, 250 Liberty Utilities employees, along with Red Cross employees/volunteers, worked to put together over 350 boxes filled with items donated by our employees. Donated items included shaving cream, shampoo and conditioner, t-shirts, snacks, and more. In addition to donated items, employees and some of their children wrote letters and took photos to be included in the boxes.
Once packaged, employees formed an assembly line to move the stacked boxes from inside into the Red Cross van. The items will go to to U.S. military members stationed at Camp Lemmonnier in Djibouti and Camps Arifjan and Buehring in Kuwait. This was such a meaningful event to all of our employees, especially the 50+ veterans that are currently employed with us. We are truly honored we were able to be a part of supporting the men and women keeping our country safe.
Liberty Utilities participated in North Attleboro’s Touch-A-Truck event on May 19. Kids were able to explore, touch, interact with, and learn about special vehicles used in the natural gas industry.
