Virginia Natural Gas is committed to making a difference in the communities it serves.
United Way Day of Caring
In coordination with the United Way of South Hampton Roads, more than 20 employees volunteered to help our friends at ForKids with a day of landscaping, painting, cleaning and appliance removal at their Chesapeake location in support of United Way’s Day of Caring.
ForKids is one of the largest providers for homeless families in Virginia, touching over 47,500 lives annually through its holistic housing programs and extended services for families.
811 Summer Education
Congrats to Newport News students who participated in our 811 summer education program and learned all about calling 811 before you dig.
The second week in May is Volunteer Week at Virginia Natural Gas. We kicked things off by marching for babies in Virginia Beach, and raising money for March of Dimes. Next, we assisted with oyster restoration at the VIMS Oyster Hatchery. Our work of filling more than 300 bags of recycled shells will make a habitat for a half million oysters! Finally, we partnered with The Union Mission Ministries in Norfolk and processed donations for that homeless shelter.
energySMART Rebates and More
Did you catch us on May 10 on Hampton Roads Happenings? We shared all of the great benefits of our energySMART program with viewers.
Natural Gas Safety
Thank you Fauquier County Fire Department for joining us for to learn about natural gas pipeline safety!
811 Education Program
In April we kicked off our 811 Education Program that teaches children in Norfolk public schools about the importance of safe digging.
There was no better way to start the day than to greet the Dreamers at Seatack An Achievable Dream Academy. An Achievable Dream operates three schools dedicated to the belief that all children can learn and succeed and that education can break the cycle of poverty.
Nothing was sweeter than our northern division employees' bake sale to raise money for the March for Babies.
Natural Gas Education
We visited our friends at Montessori Academy of Virginia who had many questions about natural gas.
Restoring the Longleaf Pine
Virginia Natural Gas has joined the Nature Conservancy in its push to restore a key piece of the Southeast's environmental heritage – the longleaf pine.
In addition to providing financial support of the Nature Conservancy in support of its efforts to restore the longleaf pine, we planted six young longleaf pines on the grounds outside of the Virginia Beach office.
We are proud that the longleaf pines will grow and hopefully thrive outside of our building. We will continue to support the Nature Conservancy’s multi-year effort to restore the historic longleaf pine and will work with the group to plant more trees throughout our region.
