Operation Share Success Stories
In various ways our local economy is worse off than in prior years, which means many households are struggling to make ends meet. With limited funds to support their families, utility bills are one of the items that can fall behind schedule causing an interruption to service.
Regardless of the reason for financial hardship, UGI wants customers to know that help is available to qualified customers. Operation Share Energy Fund provides funds to restore utility service. So, for every child who wishes for a warm home, we try to help.
Theresa Antolik, part of the UGI “Miracle Team”, eloquently answers the question why donate:
“In today’s economy there are many families that used to be fine that now [find] themselves struggling to make ends meet and keep their homes. I never want to take those basic necessities for granted.”
