Partnering with United Way to provide heat to neighbors in need
Published: October 24, 2017
October 24, 2017 | Fredericksburg, VA — Quarles Petroleum Incorporated proudly partners with the United Way each winter to provide heating fuel to local families in need through the Quarles Heating Assistance Program. Managed by the Piedmont United Way (PUW), the program provides a way for residential customers struggling to keep their homes warm to receive the fuel they need during heating season. Annually, Quarles contributes $15,000 to the program to help over 125 families in Virginia stay warm.
The Quarles mission today reflects the values of our founders, and we remain committed to being responsible corporate citizens in the communities we serve. One way is by mobilizing our company’s collective resources to support community needs. Since the Heating Assistance Program began five years ago, our customers have donated over $11,000 and Quarles has contributed $82,000 to the Heating Assistance Program.
With your help, we can reach even more neighbors in need. Quarles will match donations to the program up to an additional $5,000. Our customers have the option to donate funds to this worthwhile program through our online bill pay system. 100% of the donations go to help a person in need.
Customers can qualify for the program by reaching out to the Piedmont United Way’s First Call For Help by dialing 211. First Call For Help is a part of the Virginia 2-1-1 telephone system – a free service that helps you find local resources you need. To reach the PUW directly, call (540) 825-7615 or visit https://www.unitedway.org/local/united-states/virginia/the-piedmont-united-way.
