Gas South gives back to Georgians in need through Project SHARE
Gas South is partnering with the Salvation Army’s Project SHARE to help fellow Georgians facing hardship.
Starting this month, Gas South customers can donate money on their monthly natural gas bills to contribute to Project SHARE, a program that helps needy families with food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies and utility bills.
On Dec. 11, Gas South officially launched Project SHARE by donating blankets to the Salvation Army homeless shelter in Atlanta.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to give back to the communities that we serve by partnering with Salvation Army’s Project SHARE,” Gas South President and CEO Kevin Greiner said. “As a Georgia-based company, Gas South places high importance on volunteer work and corporate giving that benefits local families year-round.”
Gas South customers can choose to donate any dollar amount through each month’s natural gas bill. For every customer contribution to Project SHARE, Gas South has pledged to match each donation up to $5.
The Salvation Army will then use the money to help families in need in each of Georgia’s 159 counties. The money collected will stay in the county from which it originates, allowing contributors to truly help their neighbors in need.
Gas South’s partnership with Project SHARE is a continuation of Gas South Cares, a year-round company commitment to community service. For the Salvation Army Georgia Division, this is an expansion of the already successful program that has provided financial assistance to more than 40,000 Georgia families in need this year.

About the Salvation Army’s Project SHARE
The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 129 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from the Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. Project SHARE is a program of the Salvation Army Georgia Division, largely funded through the monthly donations of Georgia’s utility customers. SHARE provides emergency bill-payment assistance to individuals and families facing a temporary crisis threatening their home. SHARE attempts to target the most urgent need, whether it is a utility bill, a part of a rent payment or an emergency prescription. For more information, go to www.salvationarmyusa.org.
