Project SHARE – Teaming Up with the Salvation Army

Have you heard the news? Gas South is partnering with the Salvation Army to bring Project SHARE to our customers. Last week, we collected donations of new and used blankets to bring to the Salvation Army’s shelter in Atlanta. Our President and CEO, Kevin Greiner, joined several of our employees at the shelter, as we worked with the residents to make the beds. It was a great way to kick off the program and give back to those who need it most.

Gas South employees, Salvation Army employees and shelter residents gather together to start making beds with the donated blankets.

 

Project SHARE is an initiative through the Salvation Army that collects money to assist those who are less fortunate with acquiring food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies and paying utility bills. Donations through the program help citizens in all 159 counties of Georgia and the money collected stays in the county from which it originates. You can sign up with Project SHARE by pledging to contribute any whole dollar amount you choose each month. The amount will be automatically added to your Gas South bill. Gas South will also be matching your donation up to $5 per month in 2013.

We are looking forward to participating in Project SHARE and we hope you are too. Find out more information and sign up for the program here.

  1. Thank you Kevin and the Salvation Army for all that you are doing on this project. The sad part about our culture is that we tend to turn a blind eye to the homeless and underprivileged. It is almost what China did in the Olympics, just put up high walls around parts of the city to hide the slums, and impoverished so that they would not be embarrassed. On behalf of JRSmedical, thank you both for the great work you have done.
