“Each year we are overwhelmed with the generosity of Griffin Electric and its employees,” said Steve Bradford, President of Holliston Pantry Shelf".

Griffin Electric, the Holliston-based leading electrical contractor, has once again demonstrated support for the Holliston community with a generous donation of backpacks to Holliston Pantry Shelf families.  Griffin Electric employees purchased the age-appropriate backpacks and school supplies, which were then distributed to Holliston children ranging in age from pre-school to high school.

“Each year we are overwhelmed with the generosity of Griffin Electric and its employees,” said Steve Bradford, President of Holliston Pantry Shelf.   “Holliston families who are struggling with food insecurity are truly grateful to receive brand new backpacks with all the necessary school supplies.  Griffin Electric’s backpack initiative lessens the burden on families that are struggling to make ends meet.”

Griffin Electric’s leadership and employees joined together to make this project a success.

“Our company and its employees feel privileged to be a part of the local Holliston Community, and are proud to support the work of the Holliston Pantry Shelf.  For nearly 5 years, we have been grateful to support students with the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom through the backpack drive,” said Wayne Griffin, President of Griffin Electric.

Holliston Pantry Shelf, founded in 1993, serves more than 200 families.   Holliston Pantry Shelf, located at 73 Charles Street, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit food pantry that serves Holliston residents.   For more information about Holliston Pantry Shelf, please visit www.hollistonpantryshelf.org
