Doing Our Part to Support COVID-19 Relief

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Summit Utilities, the parent company of Summit Natural Gas of Maine, has pledged more than $80k to focus on relief efforts for those who have suffered from the devastating financial, educational and health impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. Key areas of interest include:

  • Educational Support
  • Emergency Food Distribution
  • Utility Assistance
  • Healthcare
  • Housing Support
  • Employment Support and Job Training for Displaced Workers

Twenty thousand dollars of Summit Utilities’ pledge is being donated in Maine. Funds are being distributed to local food banks, relief funds and other community organizations. At Summit we understand that we are all in this together and we understand that we are only as strong as the communities we serve. Providing these resources is one way that we can support our customers and community members who are immediately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

In addition, to supporting community causes, Summit also provides members of our team with up to 20 hours of paid time to volunteer in the communities we serve annually. If your organization has a volunteer opportunity you’d like us to know about please contact: communityaffairs@summitutilitiesinc.com.

While Summit Natural Gas of Maine will welcome all applications submitted, we strive to align our budgeted community dollars to areas of interest and key priorities stated above. Successful grant applications are typically 501c3 non-profit organizations; political organizations and most school fundraising (examples: yearbook, key club, etc.) will typically not be considered for funding.
