GESTURES OF G D FILL
We are always thinking about our impact areas: Education & Children, Housing/Food Insecurity, and Veterans/Military Families--and their interconnectedness. These impact areas fall under a really big umbrella: Gestures of Good Fill. This is the lense through which we view our philanthropy. Stay warm, everyone!
Happy Holidays from Slick Energy!
In late December, we delivered much-needed hats, gloves, and scarves (and a few games!) to the Lawrence, MA shelter network of Casa Nueva Vida. This organization provides shelter and support services to 150 families in Boston & Lawrence, MA. We look forward to partnering with Casa Nueva Vida in 2020!
December 2019: Slick helped the New England Center and Home for Veterans with their Gift-A-Vet Program; over 400 Boston-area veterans had their holiday wish lists fulfilled through this special initiative. The mission of NECHV: "To equip veterans who are facing or at-risk of homelessness with the tools for economic self-sufficiency and to provide them a path to achieve successful and dignified independent living."
94% of public school teachers spend their own money on classroom supplies. So in September 2018 we decided to help first-year teacher Shannon Beaton stock her Winthrop classroom. The thank you notes we received from Shannon's fourth-graders warmed our hearts. We'll be checking in on these kids throughout the year to see what else they need! Find out why Shannon decided to become a teacher by clicking here.
Santa Needs Help, Too.
Toys for Tots has collected & delivered over 500 million toys since its inception In 1947. As a Gesture of Good Fill in December 2017, Slick donated 5 cents/gallon to this veteran organization. Cheers!
