LS Power Grid New York makes contribution to Guardians of Freedom

Posted

HERKIMER — The LS Power Grid New York announced a major donation of services at the groundbreaking for the Guardians of Freedom Memorial on Friday, Nov. 11. The memorial will honor the valuable contributions made by military and first responder working dogs, as well as their handlers.

The mission of the Guardians of Freedom Memorial is to honor a less acknowledged, although much deserving, group of first responder animals and their handlers. The memorial will honor their teamwork, courage, and sacrifices on the battlefield.

The donation consists of site preparation, construction of the memorial base, and walkways — made possible by LS Power Grid New York and its Central East Energy Connect transmission project construction partners, including Northern Clearing. Together, they are donating approximately $50,000 of services, the announcement said.

Much of the work is scheduled to be completed by the end of this weekend, Sunday, Nov. 18.

“LS Power Grid New York is committed to supporting and improving the communities around our projects,” said Vice President Casey Carroll. “In that spirit, we are proud to honor our veterans and their working dogs by contributing to this memorial.”

“MYR Energy is thrilled to partner with LS Power Grid New York on this important project,” said Senior Project Manager Josh Allen. “The opportunity to involve employees from our Veterans Employee Resource Group is an added bonus.”

LS Power Grid New York is currently managing the development and construction of the Central East Energy Connect transmission project, a comprehensive upgrade of transmission lines between Marcy in Oneida County and New Scotland in Albany County to support clean energy transmission in the state.

The groundbreaking event represents a key step in the construction of the memorial. For more information or to make a donation, visit https://www.gofmemorial.org/
