May 30, 2018 by  

PowerOptions, an association of nonprofits that purchase energy which is based in New England, recently awarded the Malden YMCA with a $10,000 grant to enable it to continue running its programs for the community.

This was the first such initiative of PowerOptions as part of its celebration of its 20th anniversary. For this initiative, known as ‘20 for 20’, the organization is giving 20 electric charging stations and 20 gifts of cash of $10,000 each to its government and nonprofit members to support their futures in energy and their missions.

CEO of PowerOptions, Cynthia Arcate, said that these two programs are designed to help its members keep up with advancements in technology and also put money directly into the bank accounts of these organizations, helping those organizations where the biggest impact can be made. In addition, PowerOptions is awarding gifts that help to repay facilities and enhance the services of public entities and non-profits in the state.

CEO of the Malden YMCA, Deborah Amaral, commented that PowerOptions is keeping in line with its mission with these donations. The YMCA will use its money to help fund a program designed for STEM education.

Various printing services can be used by organizations such as the Y to inform the community of grant money and the benefits that will be provided to the community as a result.
