Gas South ‘Brings the Heat’!

Gas South’s 4th annual Bring the Heat™ campaign came to a close on September 30th with the Atlanta Braves last regular season home game. Each year, Gas South pledges to donate $25 each to both the United Way of Greater Atlanta and Salvation Army’s Project SHARE every time a Braves pitcher throws a strikeout. The Braves’ pitchers ended the year with 1,232 strikeouts, which allowed Gas South to contribute a grand total of $61,600 to the campaign!

Two of our vice presidents, Meredith Hodges and Chris Coan, presented the checks at Turner Field in front of a sold-out crowd to our partners. Milton Little Jr. of United Way and Josh and Jordan Hinson of the Salvation Army accepted the checks on behalf of their organizations. We are proud of our Bring the Heat™ campaign, which has allowed us to donate $172,000 since 2010. This program enables Gas South to continue to help make a huge impact on the lives of thousands of local families in need. Go Braves!
