Hillside Food Pantry, Armonk, NY – Pack Night!
Agera had the pleasure of volunteering again this past Friday at the Hillside Food Pantry now located in Armonk, NY. With a crew of volunteers from our corporate office, we helped prepare over 950 packages that contained groceries for housebound families and individuals who are living at or below the poverty level, many of which are elderly or disabled. It was hard work but we worked together as a team, rolled up our sleeves and had fun too! For more information or to see how you can contribute, visit hillsidefoodoutreach.org.
Department of Defense – 2016 Warrior Games
Agera Energy had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the 2016 DoD Warrior Games. This week long event took place at West Point Academy and is an adaptive sports competition for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans. Approximately 250 athletes participated in eight sporting events, representing teams from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy/Coast Guard, Air Force, U.S. Special Operations Command and the United Kingdom (U.K.) Armed Forces. It was such an honor being at with members of the Agera Team to support our soldiers and cheering on America’s finest men and women of our great nation was the least we could do especially considering what each and every one have them have been through for us. The DoD Warrior Games highlight the resiliency and warrior spirit of service members, veterans and their families and caregivers. Adaptive sports and athletic reconditioning activities play a fundamental role in the successful recovery and reintegration of our service members and veterans.

Agera celebrates its first annual Agera Cares Community Service Award by honoring Kevin Cassidy, Managing Director, for his outstanding dedication and compassion to the homeless community through his volunteering with the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in New York City. Kevin has been a long time personal supporter of Holy Apostles and after joining Agera he quickly formed a team of volunteers to help serve meals to those in need. Today a team of Agera Cares volunteers at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen four times a year and holds several food and clothing drives annually. Kevin’s individual efforts formed a long-term relationship between Agera and Holy Apostles. His humanity regarding community outreach is infectious and admired by fellow employees and the Agera leadership team.
Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen
Since 2014, Agera has been visiting and volunteering at the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in New York. “We are extremely happy to contribute and volunteer our time with the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. When we take time out of our day to help others, it gives our team the ability to work together for a greater cause outside the office. In doing this, it not only benefits our company, it benefits our community too…”, said Wendy Smith, Manager of Customer Service.
Fast-A-Thon 2015 took place on Thursday, November 19th. Agera employees volunteered to participate and ate only one meal for the day to bring significance to the only meal that the visitors of the Soup Kitchen have daily. In conjunction with the fasting to raise awareness, we raised over $12,000 in donations for the cause!
