Nickle Electrical Companies and its employees donated $5,240 to the Friends of Delaware Veterans Inc. to support the organization’s trust fund, which provides financial assistance to veterans for health care needs, housing support, educational and training programs and other financial emergencies such as utility cutoffs and lack of food.

“I’m very proud of our employees for coming together and supporting such a great cause,” said Steve Dignan, Nickle Electrical president/CEO. “This is Nickle’s third consecutive year raising money for the veterans in our community and we hope to continue for many years to come.”

Nickle matched, dollar for dollar, what each employee contributed. Since beginning the campaign in 2015, the company and its employees have donated a total of $13,870. The Friends of Delaware Veterans returns 100 percent of their proceeds to prescreened, honorably discharged Delaware veterans and their families in verified financial emergencies.

“We continue to be grateful to the good folks at Nickle Electrical Companies for their continued support to those who serve our great nation,” said Dave Skocik, president of Friends of Delaware Veterans, Inc. “The money they contribute goes a long way toward providing a one-time hand up to veterans in financial difficulty and says a lot about their priorities, especially during this time of year when we honor the men and women who protect us.”
