UGI volunteers sort 13,600 pounds of nonperishable food items for Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
As more families worry how they will get their next meal and if they will have a place to call home, UGI Utilities is once again working to provide food and housing to those in need.
That help includes $30,000 to support vital food programs focused on feeding children outside of school hours, including Power Packs, Cocoa Packs, Helping Harvest, Second Harvest, and the Central PA Food Bank. UGI also donated $10,000 to PA 211, a free social service hotline that connects community members with resources and programs to help meet their needs.
UGI also continues to strengthen its partnership with Habitat for Humanity to help families build and improve places to call home. UGI donated $72,500, along with many volunteer hours, to support the work of local Habitat for Humanity Organizations throughout UGI’s service territory.
“UGI recognizes the foundation of a healthy community depends on the ability for people to have stable access to affordable housing, food, and safe and healthy environments,” says Brooke Smith, UGI Utilities’ Community Relations Manager. “Investing in these programs and services across our service territory is one more way UGI can contribute to strengthening the community and supporting those who may need a hand up.”
