It is Autumn – which means one thing at UGI Energy Services – United Way kickoff time is here! We are pleased to welcome our 28th consecutive year of donating to this charitable organization, here in the area that we live and work.
As 2022 comes to a close, we would like to take some time and reflect on the United Way activities UGI Energy Services employees had participated in over the last year. UGIES President, Joe Hartz and his wife Dana were this year’s United Way of Berks County Co-Chairs, so it was a monumental year for our team in the community.
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.
And just like that, 2021 has come to a close! What a whirlwind of a year it has been, and yet we have managed to make it one to remember. Before we jump into the plans we have for the New Year, we would like to reflect on the impact we have made throughout our communities over the past year.
The holidays are a time for thanks and giving, and this year, we did just that! UGI has been busy spreading joy and merriment throughout our communities over the last several weeks. Our employees participated in a variety of charitable activities and donation drives across our footprint. We are so fortunate to collaborate with these wonderful organizations, particularly throughout the holiday season.
At UGI Energy Services, we value the work we do in the community through our incredible employees. We work closely with organizations like the United Way to determine where we can help in the places where we live and work. One program in particular is close to our hearts. Read more about which program it is, below!
On Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 -- UGIES had the pleasure of sponsoring The Salvation Army’s 2021 Advisory Board Annual Civic Breakfast at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Reading, PA. The expectations for this event were nothing short of exemplary and even those were surpassed! With that being said, who better to provide a synopsis of the morning other than UGIES’ own Stacey Taylor who attended the event?
UGI Energy Services’ employees recently joined the Emerging Leaders United team of the United Way of Berks County to collect an assortment of primary and preventative care supplies for Tower Health’s Street Medicine Program. Organized by fellow employee and ELU cabinet member, Heather Ayala, this collection of items will be used to help individuals in the areas around our corporate headquarters in Reading, PA.
The holidays have certainly proved to be a bit different this year. In an effort to spread a little cheer to those who may need it most, the UGI Energy Services team participated in many helpful programs! By giving back to our community, we hoped to brighten as many spirits as we could. We have a long tradition of charitable work, and this year was no exception.
