Peterborough Utilities Group and its employees and directors on Friday announced a second community donation of $103,000, allocated equally to Kawartha Food Share and the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough.
They were both chosen for their “history of strong support and direct assistance to those in need.”
Since its inception in April, the PUG Community Giving Program has now donated $228,000 to the community.
“Our contribution is a demonstration of our continued support of our communities as we collectively make our way through these ongoing challenging times,” the PUG stated. “We hope that this donation will provide much needed assistance to the hardest hit by this pandemic. We know that the need in our community is significant and we hope that our donations can make a difference.”
“We are so grateful to everyone at Peterborough Utilities Group who contributed to this donation to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund,” said Jennifer DeBues, Director of Operations and Granting at the Community Foundation. “Our community is so amazing with this support for vulnerable residents.”
