National Grid awarded a $4,500 grant to Liberty Hall Cathedral of Praise’s community outreach program through the company’s Project C Neighborhood Development and Community Engagement initiative that supports organizations serving local communities.

Liberty Hall Cathedral of Praise located in Brooklyn’s Canarsie neighborhood, is a faith-based organization actively working to serve the community with a food pantry, and community outreach programs.

Part of the grant was used for Liberty Hall Cathedral of Praise’s Christmas event where National Grid volunteers helped distribute food, coats, and toys to community residents in need.  National Grid also donated 200 tote bags and winter hats.  

The grant will also support the organization’s food pantry, helping to feed over 500 families on a weekly basis with fresh vegetables, dairy products, and nonperishable items.

“Many residents in our communities are still struggling with food insecurity during this ongoing pandemic,” said Terry Yarde, New York City Customer & Community manager for National Grid. “Providing relief with a grant to Liberty Hall Cathedral of Praise and offering our volunteer efforts makes us proud to be part of the efforts in helping those in need.”

Project C is National Grid’s community commitment to connect communities to clean and sustainable energy; care for neighborhoods and their revitalization; compassionately address the challenges customers face, including environmental justice and social equity; create the workforce that will help build New York’s clean energy delivery system; collaborate with customers, community partners, stakeholders and so many others to deliver the clean, fair, resilient and affordable energy future.
