Gas South and The Salvation Army team up to make a Difference this Holiday Season

Gas South continues to give back to the communities where we live and work throughout the year, and this holiday season has been no different. This year we have taken part in many initiatives but most recently we have been focusing our efforts on assisting the Salvation Army with their Angel Tree and Kettle Bell programs.

Salvation Army Angel Tree

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts to more than 12,000 children every year. The program also provides support for “Silver Bells” who are senior adults living at or below the federal index poverty level. This year, Gas South hosted an Angel Tree with 50 Angels to be “adopted.” Employees participated by choosing Angels from the tree and picking out gifts for needy families.

Gifts purchased for each Angel are given through The Salvation Army to seniors and parents who can then experience the pride of providing gifts for their children and the treasure of sharing in their excitement. Thank you to all employees who participated to make a difference in someone’s Christmas this year!

This year, Gas South employees had the opportunity to ring the red kettle bells for the Salvation Army at Cumberland Mall. Employees were asked to volunteer for two hour shifts during the week of December 14th.

Gas South sponsored the Red Kettles at Cumberland Mall from December 14th to the 19th and all donations to those kettles were matched by Gas South up to $1,250.
