SoCalGas Launches 35th Annual Gas Assistance Fund Donation Drive

Southern California Gas Co. invites customers and employees to donate to the company’s Gas Assistance Fund, which helps income-qualified customers pay their natural gas bill with a one-time grant of up to $100 per household. Contributions to the fund will be matched by SoCalGas.

The Gas Assistance Fund helps veterans, seniors, people with disabilities, and families in need pay their natural gas bills. It is administered by United Way of Greater Los Angeles, which partners with nearly 90 nonprofit organizations throughout SoCalGas’ service territory to manage and distribute the grants.

“We are continually amazed at the generosity of our customers and employees, who donate to help others,” said Sharon Tomkins, vice president of customer solutions and strategy at SoCalGas. “SoCalGas is grateful to everyone who has supported the Gas Assistance Fund over the last 35 years.”

“SoCalGas is an important partner in ending poverty in Los Angeles County,” said Elise Buik, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Los Angeles. “For a family struggling with financial hardship, this one-time gas assistance grant could be the difference in keeping them warm during the cold winter months,” she added.

Contributions may be made online or by mailing a check to: Gas Assistance Fund, File 56826, United Way Inc., P.O. Box 746826, Los Angeles, CA 90074-6826. Donations are tax-deductible and accepted year-round.

Grant applications may be filled out at a participating United Way of Greater Los Angeles partner agency between Feb. 12th and May 31st (or until the fund is depleted). For additional information, including a list of partner agencies and income guidelines, click here.

Last year, SoCalGas’ Gas Assistance Fund benefitted nearly 2,600 households in Central and Southern California and received $238,000 in donations. Since 1983, SoCalGas, the company’s customers, and its employees have contributed nearly $19 million to the Gas Assistance Fund, helping more than 226,000 individuals and families.
