Georgia Natural Gas® (GNG) recently celebrated its 6th annual TrueBlue Community Awards, recognizing Georgia's leading non-profit organizations. Since the program's inception, over $300,000 has been distributed to non-profits that share the company's community focus on children and education, seniors, energy assistance and the environment.
This year's highest TrueBlue Award winner and grant recipient was The Lydia Project. Based in Augusta, The Lydia Project supports and assists women diagnosed with cancer by providing housing, transportation, and even energy assistance to deserving women facing an often uphill battle (thelydiaproject.org). Another notable winner was Our House, an Atlanta-area family shelter that provides comprehensive support and housing services to families with young children in need.
It truly was an exciting event and one Georgia Natural Gas is always proud to host. This year, we were fortunate to welcome WXIA-TV's Christine Pullara, host of Atlanta & Co., as the event emcee, and internationally-known educator, Ron Clark, from the world famous Ron Clark Academy, as the keynote speaker. Going into 2017, we invite organizations to apply for this year's awards. Visit gng.com for videos and pictures, more information and a complete list of the 2016 winners.
Warm hearts and homes this winter by donating to the Heating Energy Assistance Team (HEAT), which helps low-income Georgians pay their heating bills during the cold winter months. Since 2000, Georgia Natural Gas has provided more than $3 million in energy assistance, and our customers have donated almost $140,000. You can help too by donating any amount.
