Radloff Middle School students pose with a giant bag of soil purchased with some of 2022’s Gas South STEAM funding that helped finance their Sustainable Food Systems project.
Each year as we strive to Be A Fuel For Good in the communities we serve, we’ve committed to giving 5% of profits to support children in need. In 2022, we were able to donate more than $3.2 million to worthy childhood causes in Georgia and Florida—more than double our charitable giving the year before. Our hope is that we can play a part in ensuring these children go on to lead successful lives.
One of those efforts in Georgia was helping to fund STEAM projects in Gwinnett County’s public schools. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, and we were thrilled to donate a total of $50,000 to six schools for various educational projects. Here’s a breakdown of the schools and the projects they received funding for:
- Partee Elementary School: $9,560 for STEAM Creation Station and Entrepreneur Expo
- Alcova Elementary School: $9,500 for Chickens in the Garden
- Bethesda Elementary School: $9,100 for Nethesda Curriculum Integration Garden
- Richards Middle School: $2,224 for Retro Richards
- Louise Radloff Middle School: $5,800 for Sustainable Food Systems; $4,750 for Lights, Camera Action!
- Discovery High School: $9,500 for STEM Lab
At Gas South, we know providing opportunities to children is one of the best ways to make the world a better place. From supporting childhood education and basic needs to helping with illness and disability, we’re committed to making a difference. And the difference is good.
