UGI Celebrates National Volunteer Week
04 May 2021
UGI employees continued their long-tradition of giving back to their local communities during April’s National Volunteer Week.
UGI’s commitment to supporting its local communities hasn’t wavered during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, over the past year, 477 UGI employees provided financial support and safely donated more than 31,400 hours to local, regional, and statewide initiatives.
And following employee activities surrounding this year’s National Volunteer Week, it’s evident employee resolve to give back is as strong as ever.
This month, UGI prioritized volunteer efforts on assisting Pennsylvania food banks, as well as community organizations across its service territory with spring clean-up and maintenance in commemoration of Earth Day. Such organizations and activities included:
• D&H Rail Trail Tree Planting (Archbald)
• Good Samaritan Services (Ephrata)
• Spring “Spruce Up” at Lauer’s Park Elementary School (Reading)
• Improvements at Habitat for Humanity Lehigh Valley ReStore (Lehigh Valley)
• Wildwood Park (Harrisburg)
“As we have always done through our nearly 140-year history, UGI and its employees responded to meet the needs of our communities,” Keith Dorman, UGI Vice President of Communications and Community Relations, said. “UGI and our employees used innovative approaches to meet the most immediate needs created by the pandemic.”
In addition to fighting hunger and supporting outdoor projects, the UGI team assisted Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity’s “Stuff the Truck” event, the American Red Cross with canvassing for its “Sound the Alarm” event, and sponsored the YWCA’s Virtual Race Against Racism.
UGI employees logged hundreds of hours on UGI-organized activities alone in April, and those hours will continue to climb in the months ahead.
