National Grid recently recognized United Way of Rhode Island for the success of United Way 2-1-1 in Rhode Island by presenting $165,000 to support the nonprofit.

“The donation was made to support the essential service the United Way’s 2-1-1 line provides to Rhode Islanders, as it has during the ongoing recovery from [Tropical Storm] Irene,” said Timothy F. Horan, president of National Grid Rhode Island and New Hampshire.

United Way 2-1-1 is a 24-hour information and referral helpline. In response to the state of emergency during Tropical Storm Irene, 2-1-1 became the emergency help-line for the state. So far, the help-line has handled more than 24,000 calls and has been working with Serve Rhode Island to recruit volunteers for the clearing and removal of storm debris.

“We’re grateful to National Grid for their generous support,” said Anthony Maione, president and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island. “Although Irene inflicted a lot of damage on our state, Rhode Islanders once again pulled together to help one another get through this crisis.” •
