GEORGIA NATURAL GAS® Welcomes Cristo Rey Students in Work/Study program

GNG TrueBlue Advantage YMCA

Georgia Natural Gas (GNG) is excited to once again welcome students from Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School to its corporate office as part of a work/study program. After a successful inaugural year last year, GNG was anxious to participate once again. Cristo Rey is located in Atlanta’s Midtown business district and educates deserving young students through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. A part of the curriculum includes an integrated work/study program with local businesses.

Not only is GNG a sponsor of the Cristo Rey program, but we are once again sponsoring four individual students who will work in different departments throughout the company. This is each student’s very first job, and GNG and its employees are excited to work with each of them and provide the opportunity for them to grow and develop in their roles.

GNG SUPPORTS UNITED WAY

The choices we make today – even the smallest ones – have the ability to make an impact on our communities and the people we care about. That’s why Georgia Natural Gas chooses to make a positive impact and support United Way of Greater Atlanta.

Simply put, United Way is the catalyst for realizing the goals many of us share – access to quality education, preventive healthcare for children and families and safe communities that are financially stable.

With expertise, energy and financial support, United Way is uniquely equipped to respond and address the needs of our community and the challenges we face.

Through their collaborative efforts, they are able to achieve measurable improvements and solid results, such as transitioning veterans into permanent housing and improving prenatal care for expectant mothers. We’re proud that our Georgia Natural Gas employees, colleagues and friends support United Way. We’re proud to Live United.
