SCE&G GIVES $5,000 TO THE SALVATION ARMY FOR FEEDING THE HOMELESS

Columbia, S.C., July 15, 2014 – SCE&G has provided a generous gift of $5,000 to The Salvation Army of the Midlands to support the Army’s Meals Service to the Homeless program. The contribution will be used to provide meals for the homeless.

“We are most grateful to SCE&G for their support of the Meals Service to the Homeless program,” said Major Roger Coulson, Regional Coordinator/Corps Officer at The Salvation Army of the Midlands. “This gift will help us continue feeding three nutritious meals each day to the homeless in our community.” The Salvation Army serves about 15,000 meals each month to clients who would otherwise go without their basic need of food.

“Giving back to the community has always been one of SCE&G’s core values,” said Stephanie Jones, SCE&G’s supervisor of philanthropy and community affairs. “We’re pleased to work with the Salvation Army as they seek to fulfill their mission and make a positive impact in the Midlands.”
