Northeast Utilities Helps Support Restoring the American Chestnut

Northeast Utilities' paper reduction program has once again made The American Chestnut Foundation beneficiary of a shareholder “challenge” grant opportunity. Northeast Utilities, with 50,000 registered shareholders, raised $8500 in 2008 for TACF and the CT Chapter by making a $5 donation for each shareholder that agreed to receive the Annual Report in an electronic format. We are fortunate to benefit from Northeast Utilities' vision.

This is a wonderful opportunity to promote the revival of a great American tree while also providing greater convenience for our shareholders,” Charles W. Shivery, NU Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer.
