This past Thursday, NextEra Energy Resources donated $1,000 to Trevor’s Gift, an organization based in Waterloo that provides food to low-income children in the community. The video below includes brief interviews with Doris Wolf, the founder of Trevor’s Gift, and David Boxold, Project Manager for NextEra Energy Resources. A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources is developing the Trelina Solar Energy Center, a solar facility proposed in the Town of Waterloo in Seneca County.
According to Wolf, in the Town of Waterloo, one in four pre-k students and one in six students in higher grades go to bed hungry. She founded Trevor’s Gift seven years ago as a way to give back to the community by confidentially providing donated food to Waterloo students by putting bags of food in students’ backpacks to take home. Since its inception, Trevor’s Gift has put food into more than 70,000 backpacks.
“At NextEra Energy Resources, we believe in building strong partnerships and supporting the communities we serve,” said David Boxold, Project Manager for NextEra Energy Resources. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Town of Waterloo to develop the Trelina Solar Energy Center which will bring significant economic benefits to the region, including good paying jobs and increased revenue.”
