Social Media Food Bank 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 banks 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 Banks; a maximum contribution of $5,000 to each of the six Food Banks. The donation made by Columbia Gas under the campaign shall be shared equally among the Food Banks. 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 Banks, any such amount to be shared equally among the Food Banks. For every “Share” of a Columbia Gas Facebook post relating to hunger or a food bank during the Term, Columbia Gas will donate $5.00 which shall be shared by the Food Banks.

 ​Official Promotion Terms:

*For every “share” of a Columbia Gas of Virginia Facebook page post relating to hunger or a food bank during the term of the promotion, Columbia Gas of Virginia will donate $5.00, for a total of up to $30,000 to six local food banks (maximum donation to each food bank is $5,000.) Facebook post shares will be tabulated starting 12 AM October 16, 2017 and ending 12 PM November 17, 2017. Each $5 donation can fund food for 20 meals at an average food bank, enabling the food banks to provide much needed food and assistance to local community members. Columbia Gas of Virginia’s goal is to match the $30,000 donation made by the NiSource Charitable Foundation.  When combined, these donations could provide enough funding to fund up to 240,000 meals. The six participating food banks include: Chesterfield Food Bank, Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank, Oasis Commission on Social Ministry, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, Culpeper Winter Heat Shelter and Hope Distributed Community Development.
