15 December 2020 – Syracuse, New York
Happy Holidays! It is our holiday wish this year to spread cheer by helping those in need. So, with everyone doing their part and working remotely, we decided in lieu of traditional cards, gifts, and parties we would donate to charities nominated by our own SmartestEnergy team members and voted on by our Channel Partners. It is a real team effort!
Here at SmartestEnergy it is a core value of ours to work together and give back whenever we can. During the coronavirus pandemic, we all witnessed the strain it put on our community and frontline healthcare workers. In the beginning of the pandemic we were blown away by the efforts of our local Ronald McDonald House Charities, which continued to assist their long-term families, while also opening their doors and offering a safe space for local frontline healthcare workers. In order to say thank you and support their amazing efforts, SmartestEnergy donated $10,000 to their cause and continues to follow their inspiring work from afar.

We wanted to carry this giving into the holiday season and have given donations to both POWERful Paws Animal Rescue and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. These two charities are near and dear to our SmartestEnergy employees and have a chance for for an additional donation as part of our holiday card donation poll! In line with SmartestEnergy’s support of a green energy and a net zero future, we also included The Nature Conservancy for their work on climate change, sustainability, and protecting natural resources. Vote for your favorite charity in our Holiday Giving Poll!
