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.

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.

Our President & CEO, Kevin Greiner teams up with Major Todd Hawks, the Metro Atlanta Area Commander for the Salvation Army to make beds in the bunk room at the shelter.

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!
