September 25th, 2019
As we wave farewell to baseball season, we’re grateful for the Pittsburgh Pirates and their partnership with Peoples Natural Gas for the 2019 Bringing the Heat campaign. On Tuesday, September 25, 2019, at one of the final games of the season, Peoples presented Jody Robertson, Dollar Energy Fund’s Director of Communications, with a check for $34,600 – a result of a full season of strikeouts. Peoples generously donated $25 for each strikeout and the Pirates pitchers delivered! The funds will go directly to assist Peoples customers who are struggling to maintain or restore basic utility services.
The strikeouts helped to raise enough money to warm the homes of more than 100 local families this winter.
Thank you to the Pittsburgh Pirates and Peoples for helping Dollar Energy Fund assist more families through the Bringing the Heat campaign. If you’re sad to see the season end, get ready for more great fundraisers coming this winter from Dollar Energy Fund and our partners! Visit our upcoming events page for more details and mark your calendars.
Your contribution directly supports an individual or family facing a utility crisis.
