UGI joined the Bridge Educational Foundation, members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and business representatives to announce a Franklin County Scholarship program funded in part by UGI Utilities.
UGI’s commitment of $5,000 toward this program is part of its total gift of $20,000 to support students and their families in local communities.
Bridge Educational Foundation is an independent non-profit organization that provides scholarship opportunities to Pennsylvania’s low-income families. Bridge partners with families, schools, businesses and philanthropic leaders to provide scholarships that allow children to attend schools that best meets their educational needs.
UGI has a long history of community involvement and has focused on providing education and literacy support to communities within its service area.
“Our children are our future,” said Keith Dorman, director of communications and community relations for UGI Utilities. “UGI’s broad support of educational initiatives and education-oriented organizations like the Bridge Educational Foundation ensures today’s students will be well equipped to be tomorrow’s leaders. UGI is pleased to make this contribution as part of our commitment to be a good partner and a good neighbor in the communities we serve.”
