Columbia Gas teams with Rebuilding Together to provide home-safety repairs

 

Columbia Gas new business manager Tyler Lonchar and construction coordinator Anthony Lance work on a home in Mt. Oliver as part of a Rebuilding Together home-safety project. The company donated $5,000 toward the project and 15 employees volunteered to help.

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania employee volunteers partnered with Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh, a non-profit organization, to rehabilitate a home in Mount Oliver recently.

"We specifically selected the Mt. Oliver area to give back to, because we are replacing a significant amount of aging pipelines in the community. We saw this as a nice way to give back to a community," said Sarah Perry, a senior communications and community relations specialist with Columbia Gas.

Fifteen volunteers from Columbia Gas employees joined with Rebuilding Together to complete necessary home improvements including interior patching, interior painting, flooring installation, carpet removal, exterior painting and retaining wall repair.

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania also donated $5,000 to Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh, providing not only sweat-equity, but also the funds required to repair the Mt. Oliver home.

"Even simple modifications to a home can greatly improve safety. We admire the work of Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh and their aim to improve the lives and living conditions of low-income homeowners," said Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Vice President and General Manager Mike Davidson.

The Mt. Oliver homeowner also qualified for the WarmWise Audits & Rebates program from Columbia Gas. Through WarmWise Audits & Rebates the customer will receive a free home energy audit, an energy-efficiency plan with estimated cost savings, when appropriate a programmable thermostat and up to $1,800 worth of rebates for the installation of audit-recommended measures.
