Virginia Natural Gas is committed to making a difference in the communities it serves.
Restoring the Longleaf Pine
Virginia Natural Gas has joined the Nature Conservancy in its push to restore a key piece of the Southeast's environmental heritage – the longleaf pine.
In addition to providing financial support of the Nature Conservancy in support of its efforts to restore the longleaf pine, we planted six young longleaf pines on the grounds outside of the Virginia Beach office.
We are proud that the longleaf pines will grow and hopefully thrive outside of our building. We will continue to support the Nature Conservancy’s multi-year effort to restore the historic longleaf pine and will work with the group to plant more trees throughout our region.
Gift Giving with the Salvation Army
We joined the Salvation Amy in delivering Angel Tree gifts in supports of more than 5,000 families.
We visited Hilton Elementary School to share the value of STEM education in the natural gas industry.
The second week in May is Volunteer Week at Virginia Natural Gas. In 2016, several team members participated in Career Day at the Rena B. Wright Primary in Chesapeake where they shared what it’s like to work for Virginia Natural Gas.
A group of employees dished out the plates and filled water cups at the Union Mission Ministries in Norfolk while another group spent their time in the food warehouse, sorting and packing donated non-perishable food that will help families.
And finally, a fun time was had by all our employee volunteers who built oyster habitats with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Saving the bay is uniquely tied to restoring the native oyster.
