This holiday season, Columbia Gas Pennsylvania donated $15,000, partially funded from the NiSource Charitable Foundation to The Salvation Army in support of their annual Red Kettle, Project Bundle-Up and Treasures for Children campaigns.
Columbia Gas employees volunteered their time to ring the Red Kettle, shopped with children during the Project Bundle-Up shopping trips and donated hundreds of gifts for children and families in need as part of the Treasures for Children project.
“Columbia Gas has been a tremendous supporter of The Salvation Army for many years,” said Ava Henderson The Salvation Army Director of Marketing and Public Relations. “In addition to monetary support, their gifts of time, talent and resources has helped many struggling families across Western Pennsylvania.”
“Columbia Gas is committed to giving back during the holiday season and throughout the year,” said Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Huwar. “The important service and work provided by The Salvation Army is critical to the health of our communities.”
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign is one of the oldest and largest charitable campaigns in the world. Every year, the campaign raises millions of dollars to provide toys for kids at Christmas, clothes and shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, after-school programs for kids, and other services to America’s most vulnerable populations year-round.
