Special to The Lake Report
Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro is donating $4,000 to Newark Neighbours.
Other than matching employees in the annual United Way drive, NOTL Hydro typically does not make charitable donations. As a 100 per cent municipally owned corporation, NOTL Hydro leaves these actions to its shareholder, the town.
This year, due to the pandemic, there will be no parade or Christmas functions so the board of NOTL Hydro decided to make this donation to Newark Neighbours.
Meanwhile, NOTL Hydro is continuing with its annual food and toy drive.
Donations can be brought to our location at 8 Henegan Rd. in Virgil until this Friday, Dec. 11. Weather permitting, a bin is available for drop-offs just outside the office for anyone not comfortable coming inside.
Food and cash donations (cash donations can be made as well) are given to Newark Neighbours while the toys go to either Gillian’s Place or Project Share.
