From Natural Gas to Handmade Mats: Employees Assist Dallas Nonprofit with Holiday Project

Community
November 2, 2017

For many, fall marks the start of the season of giving. Atmos Energy employees recently paired up with the Momentous Institute in Dallas to assist with the organization’s annual Parent Center project for the holidays. The Momentous Institute is a primary supplier of education and therapeutic services, impacting 6,000 kids and family members each year.

While teaching the parents about natural gas safety, Atmos Energy employees saw an opportunity to assist the Parent Center in their mission to collect supplies for handmade mats for the homeless community. These mats are created by cutting plastic shopping bags into strips and crafting the mats by hand.

Throughout the summer, employees collected over 1,500 bags to donate to this venture. Last month, they had the opportunity to deliver their collection to the Momentous Institute. To see more about their donation, you can view this video.
