NYSEG and RG&E Employees Gather and Distribute Gifts of Warmth for Those in Need

Rochester, NY – Building on a long tradition of giving, NYSEG and RG&E employees have completed the third annual Week of Warmth project. For the past several weeks, employees have gathered more than 3,500 winter hats, scarves or pairs of mittens/gloves that have been provided to more than 20 community agencies and schools across the companies’ service areas for those in need.

“This is the third year for this endeavor and our employees have again taken the initiative to let some of the less fortunate in our communities know that we are thinking of them,” said Mark S. Lynch, president and CEO of NYSEG and RG&E. “The results of this effort speak for themselves, and our employees deserve congratulations for their enthusiastic response.”

Volunteer project coordinators across the state used contests and raffles to raise awareness of the effort and encourage employees to participate.
