National Grid makes big-hearted donation to St. Joseph’s High School

Give a mega-watt high-five gigabyte to National Grid for donating 20 computers to St. Joseph High School. The donations will make a huge difference in the academic success of the students, helping them complete homework and prepare for college, said school spokesman Paul Kennedy.

“This year’s gift from the Grid doubles down on last year’s present of 10 computers and 10 laptops,” he said. Sweet!

All this amounts to National Grid sticking to its mission of giving back to the communities it serves. The company supports many programs, including energy, education, and the environment while engaging students in the developmental skills central to the company’s business activities.

Head honchos George Mayhew, director of corporate affairs, and Max Currie, chief information officer, were on hand to plug in those PCs and start the students on their journey on the super information highway.

Standing O says, “Thanks, so how about those heating costs?”
