Community Support Starts with Commitment
We partner with community programs, like the Salvation Army’s Share the Warmth and the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, to provide energy assistance to customers in need whose immediate financial resources cannot cover their home-heating expenses.
While we are a for-profit business, part of stewardship is treating our financial resources as though they are not our own. We also use our financial resources to improve our communities through charitable giving through our ONE Gas Foundation, volunteerism and local partnerships.
