OLD BRIDGE – PSEG recently awarded the Old Bridge Junior Knights Bantam Ice Hockey Team a $300 grant as part of the company’s Support for Sports program. The company gave the grant on behalf of Anthony Barone, an appliance service supervisor for PSE&G. The grant money will help to offset team fees, as well as pay for new hockey equipment.
This season the Bantam Junior Knights are undefeated through their first 5 games, scoring 30 goals while giving up only 10 goals.
Barone, a resident of Manalapan, has been employed with PSE&G for 12 years and is the assistant coach for the 13 and 14 year old Junior Knights. His son, Joseph, is one of two goaltenders on the team. This year marks Barone’s third season of volunteering with the Old Bridge hockey program.
“Youth hockey is a very expensive sport, so the Support for Sports grant is a huge help to the team,” said Barone. “The Knights thank PSEG for their generous donation, as well as for all the youth programs the company supports throughout the state.”
Support for Sports is a program that allows PSEG to recognize and reward employees who are involved with community youth sports programs. The company understands the enormous amount of time and dedication they put into volunteering. One of PSEG’s greatest sources of pride is its history of supporting employees’ volunteer efforts, as well as investing in the communities in which they live and work.
