Teams of PSEG Long Island employees frequently visited and volunteered at the Mary Brennan Interfaith Nutrition Network Soup Kitchen, in Hempstead, throughout the year as part of the company’s goals to lend a hand and give back to the community.
At least once a month, employees provide meals, food, clothing and toiletries to the INN's guests, while helping out with whatever else is needed at the soup kitchen.
Volunteers prepare and serve hot meals to guests in the soup kitchen and stack supplies in the INN's Choice Pantry, where guests receive free food items to provide their families with weekend meals. Other volunteer opportunities include working in the walk-through thrift shop, helping guests select donated clothing, kitchen items and other household essentials.
Jermaine Clarke, of East Meadow, is one of the volunteers and, with his co-workers, cleaned up and made the property safe at the INN’s men’s home by power washing the deck and ramp and taking care of other outdoor chores.
PSEG Long Island is committed to giving back to the people and communities it serves by actively supporting hundreds of local charity events each year through the company's Community Partnership Program. Last year, PSEG Long Island employees logged an 30,000 service hours at 1,045 fundraising and community events, supporting more than 500 organizations.
