UGI Employees Support United Way “Day of Caring” Across Pennsylvania
30 May 2018
Forty-six UGI employees in communities across Pennsylvania supported the United Way in projects performed as part of the “Day of Caring” initiative during the latter half of May.
The United Way of Franklin County’s Day of Caring program allowed UGI employees from the company’s Shippensburg office to set up for the 34th Annual Book Sale of the Friends of Legal Services held at Wilson College, Chambersburg. Another group of employees performed outdoor landscaping at the Frances Leiter Center at the Children’s Aid Society, Chambersburg.
- Franklin County Legal Services provides access to legal representation, advice, and education to low-income individuals with civil legal problems in Franklin and Fulton Counties.
- The Children’s Aid Society works to meet the emotional and immediate physical needs of children. The Children’s Aid Society operates three centers that address child welfare and child-parent relationships.
At the Schuylkill United Way Capt. Jason B. Jones Memorial Day of Caring, UGI employees from the Company’s Frackville office planted vegetables and a flower garden at the Salvation Army of Pottsville.
- The Salvation Army is dedicated to feeding the hungry, providing shelter for the homeless, emergency disaster relief, addressing poverty with a myriad of social services, and offering congregational life, educational and wellness programs for youth and seniors.
Landscaping, painting and general maintenance was the focus at three different projects during the United Way of Wyoming Valley Day of Caring. UGI employees from the Wilkes-Barre office worked at the Catholic Youth Center, Wilkes-Barre; Step by Step, Inc., Lehman; and the SPCA of Luzerne County, Wilkes-Barre.
- The Catholic Youth Center provides a solid foundation for the youth of the area by helping develop the personalities, skills and future goals of thousands of young men and women. The Center also serves as a major recreation agency for Wilkes-Barre and surrounding communities.
