Pack a Pickup with Proteins
Employees at Direct Energy Solar of 54 Tuttle Place, Middletown got creative if not a little messy as they raised $290 for St. Vincent de Paul recently. Event coordinator Paul Hogan sold them balloons filled with paint and encouraged them to hurl them (via slingshot) onto this giant canvas! Thank you, Direct Energy Solar! Do you have a unique way to raise funds and awareness for SVDM that we can share with our folks? Please contact Tanja, 860-344-0097 x13.
