DERBY — This holiday season, Fred’s Energy once again helped support local area toy drives.
Each of their three offices was a toy donation site and for every toy donated, Fred’s Energy offered individuals the chance to win100 gallons of propane or oil, and a 3 ft. tall snowman gift tower filled with holiday treats.
The Fred’s Energy main office in Derby helped collect toys for the NEKCA & Northpoint “Toys for Kids” toy drive, the Morrisville office helped collect toys for The Lamoille Family Center’s “Holiday Project,” and the Lyndonville office helped collect toys for the St. Johnsbury Fire Department’s “Kingdom Santa Fund.”
Each of these organizations was selected because all toys donated would be distributed right back into our local communities.
“This time of year can be a struggle for many, yet numerous local families were helped because of your incredible thoughtfulness,” Fred’s Energy said in a statement. “Your toy donations brought such JOY to so many children and brightened everyone’s holiday.”
Ryan Pelow of the St. Johnsbury Fire Department pulled Donald Raboin’s name from all the entries received at the Fred’s Energy Lyndonville office.
Raboin, in the true spirit of the holidays, gifted the fuel to a parent.
Wendy Chauvin of the Lamoille Family Center drew Sarah Denis’ name from all the entries received at the Fred’s Energy Morrisville office.
Denis, too, gifted it forward by donating the fuel to the Lamoille Family Center for someone in need.
Michaela Fields was the winner in the Fred’s Energy Derby office toy drive drawing.
Rachel Twofoot from Northpoint selected Michaela’s name when she and Mary Hamel from NEKCA arrived to pick up the toys for distribution.Are you on Instagram? Cool. So are we. CLICK HERE to follow us for a behind the scenes look at Newport Dispatch.
