AVANGRID Celebrates National Lineworker Appreciation Day
The lineworkers across Avangrid Networks are the cornerstone of our operations in New York, Connecticut and Maine. Whether it is a thunderstorm in the middle of the summer, or an ice storm in the winter, lineworkers are the first responders who ensure our communities, businesses, and homes have the power they depend upon. As the needs of the electric system continue to grow, it is important to send the message to lineworkers that the people of our nation respect and appreciate their hard work and dedication to the craft!
FOSTERING A PASSION FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS WITH LOCAL LEGEND - THE SHUBERT THEATERs
From powering the famous footlights to inspiring a passion for the arts, the Avangrid Foundation, in charitable partnership with local AVANGRID subsidiaries United Illuminating and Southern Connecticut Gas are long-time partners of the historic Shubert Theater, in New Haven, Conn.
The Shubert Theater and Arts Summer Camp finished its eighth summer on July 26th, 2019. Avangrid support helps fund the camper financial aid as well as stipends for the program’s teaching assistants. Each year, approximately, twenty students receive over $7,000 in tuition assistance, enabling equal opportunity and access to arts and culture.
