2018 Vet program: double the impact!

Last winter we worked with Veterans Inc. and National Grid’s Customer Care Outreach Team to help returning veterans as they re-established households stateside. Together we were able get 778 Heat Smart kits to veterans to help them keep warm and save on their energy bills.

With such a wonderful result we couldn’t wait to do it again this winter. We teamed up with National Grid and the PUC of RI and doubled our impact: 1000 kits went to Veterans Inc. in Shrewsbury, MA, and just under 500 went to Operation Stand Down Rhode Island Veterans event. The program is called “Because they kept us safe, let’s keep them warm” and we’d also call it a giant success. Our thanks to all who worked so hard to make it happen.

This coming year, we’re focusing on developing even more beneficial partnerships with incredible organizations so we can help America’s heat insecure. In addition to utilities and veteran’s groups, we work with community action agencies, American Indian health and welfare groups, and government heat assistance programs. In addition, we also work directly with many kinds of nonprofits – in fact we’re already successfully working with Rebuilding Together.

Vincent J. Perrone, President and CEO of Veterans Inc. and Lt. Colonel, USAF (Ret.) said it best: “working together like this means we can achieve so much more.”

We’d like to welcome you to this group of smart people making smart decisions. Come on in out of the cold and let us develop a custom partnership with you to meet your heat assistance goals and improve the well-being of your community. Cost-effective Heat Smart kits have helped countless agencies and programs like yours save money and reach more constituents.
