Employees from the American Gas Association (AGA), Dominion and natural gas utilities will build bicycles for children in need in Cleveland, OH during the Republican National Convention.
“Bikes can mean so much to children in terms of exercise, fresh air, the opportunity to go to the park, library or be with their friends. We value our relationships in our local communities, and we appreciate the opportunity to give back in a tangible and fun manner for these children,” said Paul Koonce, CEO, Dominion Generation Group.
“Natural gas utilities deliver essential energy to more than 177 million Americans and are a true partner in the communities they serve,” said AGA Chairman Ralph LaRossa. “It is at the heart of everything we do and we wanted to make that spirit a part of our time in Cleveland.”
“We are in the midst of a national conversation about the future of this country and for natural gas utilities those relationships begins in our local communities,” said Dave McCurdy, AGA president and CEO. “All politics is local and our priority remains delivering energy safely and reliably to homes and businesses throughout this country.”
Bike building kits will be supplied by Bikes for Goodness Sake. AGA and Dominion East Ohio are working with the Rainey Institute in Cleveland to ensure that the bikes are made available to children who need them. Some of the children will be at the event to receive brand new bicycles and helmets.
AGA and Public Service Electric & Gas Co. will hold a similar event in Camden, NJ during the Democratic National Convention later this month.Tags: AGA, American Gas Association, Cleveland, Dominion
