We can‘t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. – Ronald Reagan
UGI celebrated National Volunteer Week this week by holding celebrations to recognize employees across the company who volunteered in 2016. Being part of the Community Relations team, I had the opportunity to meet many volunteers across the company and hear first-hand how they impact their local communities. It is easy to see that UGI employees are deeply committed the community. In 2016 alone, nearly 600 volunteers served over 54,000 hours!
I’ve been a long-time employee and volunteer and it wasn’t until recently when I transitioned to the Community Relations department that I truly understood the effect employees make in the community across UGI’s service territory. In talking with volunteers this week and reviewing the volunteer survey, I had the opportunity to learn why employees volunteer in their community. Each and every employee had a moving reason, from wanting to make a difference to feeling it is the right thing to do. It was inspiring to hear these responses and know that UGI employees have the Energy To Do More for the community!
As this year’s Volunteer Week is coming to a close, I want to say thank you to the many volunteers that give “Everyday Efforts” and provide “Extraordinary Impact” in the communities in which we live and serve!
