Atmos Energy Corporation has announced a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross that will help provide disaster relief to communities affected by Hurricane Ida.
“Everyone at Atmos Energy is keeping those impacted by Hurricane Ida in our thoughts and prayers,” said Kevin Akers, Atmos Energy president and CEO. “Our strong culture has been called upon once again to support our teammates, family, friends, neighbors, customers and communities. We proudly support the American Red Cross and their efforts.”
In the early stages of the relief effort, the American Red Cross had hundreds of trained workers on the ground to help thousands seeking refuge at dozens of community shelters in areas that were struck by the Category 4 hurricane.
As part of its Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities initiative, Atmos Energy’s donation will provide significant support for disaster relief efforts.
