Columbia Gas of Virginia and the NiSource Foundation have made a $10,000 grant to the Virginia Wounded Warriors Program. The donation is being made to support the work of the Wounded Warriors Program in helping our veterans with injuries as a result of their service to the United States.

The Wounded Warrior Program provides support to wounded veterans and their families by linking them to needed resources including behavioral healthcare, veteran’s benefits, housing and employment assistance across the Commonwealth.

“Columbia Gas believes that by giving hope to our wounded veterans in need we can play a small role in helping them rise up and triumph going forward,” said Carl Levander, President of Columbia Gas of Virginia. “We have been an active partner in Virginia since 1847 and we hope this contribution can help improve the quality of life for some of our fellow citizens.”
