Atmos Energy, through its Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities initiative, plans to contribute $100,000 to assist Mississippi residents in ensuring safety and warmth in the forthcoming winter season.
This endeavor is in collaboration with multiple assistance bodies and nonprofit organizations, including Vicksburg Salvation Army.
These resources are earmarked to aid residents in settling utility bills, making enhancements for home weatherization, and managing or replacing resident-owned gas-related appliances and infrastructure.
Mathew Davidson, who leads the Mississippi division at Atmos Energy, conveyed that the company deeply values its communities. He expressed an understanding of unforeseen challenges and emphasized the company’s intent behind this donation: to alleviate financial burdens for families. The underlying message is to ensure that no family is forced to compromise between essential needs like heating, food, or medication during winter.
As part of this program, Vicksburg’s Salvation Army is set to benefit with a $5,000 allocation. Bree Boyd, who oversees energy assistance at Atmos Energy, acknowledged the company’s association with local community entities. Boyd emphasized the importance of these partnerships in serving diverse sections of society, like the elderly, veterans, people with disabilities, and families undergoing financial strain, ensuring they have consistent and affordable natural gas access year-round.See a typo?
