Connecticut Light & Power Co. and Yankee Gas recently presented a check for $110,000 to Operation Fuel as a result of the two utility companies' shareholder match for Operation Fuel's Add-a-Dollar program. CL&P and Yankee Gas matched a portion of their customers' $294,885 donation to the Add-a-Dollar program during 2010-2011. One hundred percent of the money donated to Operation Fuel through the Add-a-Dollar program is used for energy assistance. Operation Fuel is a private, nonprofit statewide program that provides emergency energy assistance to lower-income working families, the elderly and disabled individuals who are not eligible for energy assistance from state funded programs. Pictured are, from left: Jeff Butler, CL&P president and chief operating officer; Mark Berns, Operation Fuel's board chair; Patricia Wrice, Operation Fuel executive director; and Karen Samide, communications manager for Yankee Gas.
