Nickle Electrical Companies, with offices in Newark and Georgetown, contributed $4,260 to the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund in conjunction with Veterans Day.

"This is the second consecutive year the good folks at Nickle have done this, and it will be truly appreciated by all of the veterans this will help," said Dave Skocik, president of the Friends of Delaware Veterans Inc., the official fundraising organization of the Veterans Trust Fund.

Founded in 1986, Nickle Electrical Companies performs commercial, industrial, residential and service work throughout the entire state of Delaware, southeast Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia.

“Steve Dignan, president and chief executive officer of Nickle Electrical Companies, approached us last year at this time as the weather was getting colder asking how he and his employees could help the state’s veterans going through tough times,” Skocik said. “They conducted a fund drive and came through then and have done it again.”

The Friends is made up of veteran leaders statewide who volunteer their time, resources and effort throughout the year to provide a one-time hand up to veterans in financial emergency. The Trust Fund has prevented cutoff of utilities, repossessions, evictions, made emergency repairs to homes and sometimes put food on the table.
