Atmos Energy raises $1.6 Million during annual ‘Week of Giving’

Employee donations plus matching company funds will benefit United Way, No Kid Hungry, The Salvation Army

GARLAND, Texas – Sept. 23, 2021 – Atmos Energy employees pledged $827,495 during the company’s annual Week of Giving campaign, held Sept. 13 through Sept. 17, to benefit No Kid Hungry, The Salvation Army, and United Way. Doubling the financial impact for these essential organizations through its Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities initiative, Atmos Energy will match all employee donations to these vital nonprofits – bringing the total amount raised to more than $1.6 million. These funds, to be distributed across the eight states Atmos Energy serves, are focused on three key beneficiaries: students, heroes, and neighbors.

“Our extraordinary employees give of their time, their talent and their resources throughout the year to support our communities, our school districts, after school programs and food banks, as part of our commitment to fueling safe and thriving communities,” said Kevin Akers, Atmos Energy president and CEO. “No Kid Hungry, The Salvation Army, United Way and organizations like Homes For Our Troops are invaluable partners that reinforce our enduring commitment to combat childhood illiteracy, provide for food insecure households and honor our everyday heroes who keep our country and communities safe, and healthy.”

Atmos Energy employees supported each of these organizations through fun team-building activities, and also volunteered virtually to support schools and nonprofit organizations and dedicated additional funds to impact Homes For Our Troops, an organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans, helping them to rebuild their lives.

“Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities isn’t just a tagline for us; it is what we do, and it is who we are,” said Liz Beauchamp, Atmos Energy vice president of governmental and public affairs. “We are thankful for our incredible team members who gave their time, talent, and resources to make our communities a better place.”
