Thank you for attending ANCA’s 2024 Clean Energy Conference! As energy professionals, we all know the importance of supporting the communities we work and live in, and sometimes that involves giving back. We are excited to announce this year’s conference will help to support local food pantries throughout Jefferson County with a Clean Energy Food Drive!

The United Way of NNY hosts an annual event to combat food insecurities in the North Country. ANCA and the North Country Clean Energy Hub would like to invite you to be a part of this initiative by bringing in a nonperishable food item, or personal care item, to donate for the cause. A list of needed items can be found below, but any non-perishable, unexpired, item will do. A box will be available at the conference. Let’s work together to show our community our top-notch energy and meet a goal of collecting 100 items!

Examples of in-demand items:

  • Juice boxes or pouches
  • Fruit cups or canned fruit in natural juices
  • Soap, shampoo, conditioner
  • Applesauce
  • Razors
  • Cereal
  • Diapers Shelf-stable milk (powdered milk)
  • Deodorant
