Griffin Electric donates school supplies to area students

Holliston, MA (September 2018).  Due to the generosity of its employees, Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. (Griffin Electric) was able to donate 65 backpacks filled with school supplies to local students in need. Since 2014, Griffin has worked with the Holliston Pantry Shelf to provide assistance to families within the Holliston area. This year, the company was able to support both the Holliston Pantry Shelf and Milford Housing Authority with backpacks for students.

The Holliston Pantry Shelf accepts contributions throughout the year for food and other goods, as well as monetary donations, and manages drives for the back-to-school and holiday seasons.  The Milford Housing Authority help slow-income families with affordable housing and other economic support.  The backpack drive takes place every August, to ensure students are prepared with the necessary supplies to excel in their studies throughout the upcoming school year. 

Having the opportunity to support the important work of such organizations is a core part of Griffin Electric’s culture.
