Avangrid Foundation donates $50K to Red Cross hurricane relief

Avangrid Foundation has donated $50,000 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief to help provide food, emergency shelter, relief supplies and other necessities to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The foundation is the philanthropic arm of Central Maine Power’s parent company, AVANGRID Inc. (NYSE:AGR), a diversified energy and utility company headquartered in Orange, Conn.

"Hurricane Harvey has caused significant destruction and has affected thousands of people," James P. Torgerson, president of Avangrid Foundation, said in a news release. “Our thoughts are with those affected by this storm, including our own AVANGRID employees.”

AVANGRID employs more than 100 people in Houston and Corpus Christi, Texas, as part of its ENSTOR Gas Storage company and as field employees at its Renewables wind project.

As a member of the Red Cross' Annual Disaster Giving Program, Avangrid Foundation pledges donations on an ongoing basis in advance of disasters to help ensure the Red Cross can take immediate action. Since partnering with the Red Cross in 2016, Avangrid Foundation has contributed more than $200,000 for disaster relief.
