Syracuse, NY - November 25, 2010: In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Just Energy staff in the Syracuse office delivered 90 turkeys to shelters in Onondaga and Courtland County. The turkey distribution is one of the many ways Just Energy contributes to the community each year.
"We are so proud of our people for taking on this initiative and giving Thanksgiving to people who may otherwise go without," said Gord Potter, executive vice president, regulatory and legal affairs with Just Energy. "Just Energy can contribute to the communities in which we operate because of the spirit and generosity of our people like the ones in our Syracuse office."
The Just Energy office worked with Nancy Schmid, director of nutrition services with Onondaga County to ensure the turkeys went to the places that needed them the most.
"Thanks to Just Energy's generosity, our shelters will have fresh-cooked turkey for Thanksgiving," said Schmid. "This donation helps stretch our program budgets and serve more meals."
Just Energy representatives personally delivered the turkeys throughout the two counties.
