Utility, the premier innovator in plumbing and heating chemical products, has generously donated to CN Guidance and Counseling Services’ initiative of feeding their essential workers.   Utility sponsored the purchase of meals to feed 200 staff during day, night and weekend shifts.  The staff meals were purchased at deep discounts from local restaurants, including Italian, Greek, and traditional breakfast cuisine.  CN Guidance employees are extremely grateful and have thanked community supporters during this challenging time.  The community rallying around the frontline essential staff has highlighted the best in humanity in trying times.
