LITTLETON, Colorado – Colorado Natural Gas, Inc. (CNG) today announced the recipients of its 2019 Charitable Giving Program.

Each year the company awards thousands of dollars in grants to local nonprofits and community events that strengthen the local communities it serves. This year the company is donating more than $18,500 to local and statewide organizations.

“At Colorado Natural Gas, being a good friend and neighbor is part of who we are, which is why each year we look forward to committing resources for worthy causes that strengthen the local communities and economies of those we serve,” said Jason Weekley, Chief Operations Officer. “Whether it is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation to offer 100 customers a free tree, helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity, or donating supplies to local schools, we strive to be a good community partner and neighbor.”

In addition to providing charitable grants and yearly sponsorships to local organizations and causes, Colorado Natural Gas also provides each of its employees 20 hours a year to volunteer in the community.
