Serving Those in Need
The Night Ministry
The Night Ministry provides resources and support to people struggling with poverty or homelessness. In addition to financial support from
the company, Peoples Gas employee volunteers normally assemble 200 sack suppers each month for The Night Ministry
to distribute to clients. Due to COVID-19, we had to pivot, and are now partnering with local businesses to provide packaged meals on our
behalf. Volunteers also put together hygiene kits distributed to clients each winter.
Commitment to Community Day Every April, in partnership with Rebuilding Together,
Peoples Gas employees volunteer to spend a day making much-needed repairs to a neighborhood-based service organization.
The company’s Commitment to Community Day is its most popular volunteer event, drawing more than 200 employees, family members and friends annually.
Organizations benefiting from Commitment to Community Day include homeless shelters, counseling centers, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and other
