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 money will help the team to offset fees, as well as pay for new hockey equipment.
Last year the Junior Knights advanced to the New Jersey State Championship, but unfortunately lost a close game after posting 34 wins and only 10 loses for the season. This year’s team moves up to the Midget 16-year-old division and has already started training and practice sessions in preparation for another terrific year.
Barone, a Manalapan resident, has been employed with the Public Service Electric and Gas Company for 13 years. He is also 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 fourth season of volunteering with the Old Bridge hockey program.
“This is the second year that PSEG has supported the Old Bridge Hockey program,” said Barone. “The company’s Support for Sports grant is a tremendous help to the players and their families, and is greatly appreciated.”
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.
