Social Media Food Pantry Campaign

Together, we have the energy to make a difference. We believe that to be true, and that's why we're working closely with our local food pantries to help support the amazing efforts in our communities to combat hunger. Columbia Gas will donate a combined total of up to $30,000 to the Food Pantries; a maximum contribution of $5,000 to each of the six Food Pantries. The donation made by Columbia Gas under the campaign shall be shared equally among the Food Pantries. Regardless of the success of the campaign (exceeding or falling short of the total $30,000 contribution) Columbia Gas reserves the right to donate up to $30,000 to the Food Pantries, any such amount to be shared equally among the Food Pantries. For every “Share” of a Columbia Gas Facebook post relating to hunger or a food pantry during the Term, Columbia Gas will donate $5.00 which shall be shared by the Food Pantries.
