Atlanta Gas Light employees embody our corporate value of “generosity of spirit” through their participation in a variety of community service activities. In some cases, the commitment has lasted for years.
Watch and listen to Atlanta Gas Light President Bryan Batson talk about our commitment and service to the communities where our customers live and work.
Savannah Toy Drive
Atlanta Gas Light team members from the Savannah service center delivered 1,800 toys for children to the Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital. Team members started collecting toys in June at five regional locations throughout Southeast Georgia. They also built a toy house for Santa's helpers to dig into to find the right toy for every boy and girl.
The second week in May is Volunteer Week at Atlanta Gas Light. This year, work continued on our 27th Atlanta Habit for Humanity build, while other employees enjoyed volunteering at Westside Elementary’s Field Day, where they stayed young at heart by tossing water balloons, playing baseball and tug-of-war. Employees also spent time picking up trash by hand from nearby roadways, fences and plant beds in Vidalia and Jesup.
Habitat for Humanity
We kick off this year’s Habitat for Humanity build Saturday, April 23, as Atlanta Gas Light continue our long-standing partnership with Equifax and Atlanta Habitat for Humanity to build our 26th home. Atlanta Habitat for Humanity partners with working families and communities to build affordable, green, quality homes and to provide support services that promote successful home purchase and ownership.
Lee Street fourth grade elementary students were treated to an engaging and educational visit from Atlanta Gas Light employees as our Clayton service center kicked off its annual Career Week.
The visit was the first of several to different schools throughout the week.
This year we spoke to the kids about a career in the natural gas industry as well as gas safety.
Junior Achievement Day of Giving
Nearly 20 employees recently shared their own real-world experiences and skills with Atlanta-area students as they volunteered in partnership with Junior Achievement of Atlanta at our JA Day of Giving at the Chick-fil-A Foundation Discovery Center.
Each volunteer mentored a group of students, helping to prepare them for real-world challenges and opportunities they’ll face in the years ahead – specifically honing their skills in areas that aren’t traditionally taught in a classroom setting.
Our partnership with Junior Achievement of Atlanta will continue with our next volunteer opportunity later this fall.
Minority Supplier Expo
We were pleased to participate in this expo hosted by the Georgia Supplier Development Council.
Earth Day Clean Up
Employee volunteers helped with clean-up and beautification efforts at Covenant House in Atlanta, which assists homeless youth.
