UGI Energy Services recently had another successful year participating in the Angel Tree Program. Our company had 100 tags split amongst Veterans, Seniors & children in our community. Each tag represents a person, and includes their Christmas wish list. By coming together for this cause, we were able to donate over 500 gifts to these 100 people. This year marked the 13th year of UGIES participating in the Angel Tree Program. We are so grateful for the generosity and kindness of employees for supporting others during this holiday season. Each year this program is organized by Heather Ayala, who goes above and beyond to assure it is a success.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season draws near, it is a perfect time to reflect on all we have to be grateful. This is the time of year to count our blessings, and give back to those that may not have the same advantages that we do. Supporting our local communities through the United Way is one of the ways UGI Energy Services employees give back. From providing monetary donations to volunteering, hundreds of thousands of people in Berks County are served through 80 programs at 33 partner agencies supported by the United Way. Each year, UGI Energy Services campaigns to raise money to support the United Way. The campaign includes a loaned campaign specialist (LCS) from our business, giving out incentives to encourage donations, creating videos on why we should donate, and more. As the year comes to a close, the final results of our United Way campaign are here!
Representatives from UGI Energy Service’s Veteran’s Employment Team (VET) had the opportunity to attend the annual Benefit for Berks County Veterans Presented by Customer's Bank on Friday, November 12th, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Reading, PA. The event featured guest speaker retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North. Proceeds from the event, for which UGIES and UGI Utilities were a Gold Sponsor, will go directly to support veterans in the Berks County community through the Military Assistance Fund of Berks County Community Foundation.
