CLARK – PSEG recently awarded the Clark Girls Softball League (CGSL), a recreational softball program for girls in kindergarten to eighth grade, a $300 grant as part of the company’s Support for Sports program. The company gave the grant on behalf of Thomas Tropeano, a distribution supervisor for Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G). The grant money will help the league to cover expenses for operating their softball fields and concession stand.
The Clark Girls Softball League is open to all girls residing in the towns of Clark and Garwood. It is also a “feeder program” to several traveling softball teams that later move up and play for the Arthur L. Johnson High School.
Tropeano is a resident of Clark and has been employed with PSE&G since 1984. He has volunteered his time with the CGSL for ten years as a team coach and manager, as well as assisting with field maintenance and running the pre season practice clinic. Two of his daughters play in the league and his wife is a team parent who also helps run the concession stand. The Tropeano’s eldest daughter is also involved as a CGSL umpire.
“I am very grateful to PSEG for their generous donation,” said Tropeano. “It is comforting to know that the company has programs like Support for Sports that helps support employees and their families. The Clark Girls Softball League has been a vital part of my community and is instrumental in the education and development of sports for girls.”
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.
