In response to Covid-19, this year’s annual Art on the Beltline went VIRTUAL, and Georgia Natural Gas® (GNG) was proud to be the presenting sponsor! The BeltLine Live Stream Virtual Art Festival took place June 14-20 and featured a collection of virtual works and performances by artists from this year’s exhibition. It was held exclusively online out of respect for social distancing and gathering guidelines. Featured artists included Dr. Fahamu Pecou, Courtney Brooks, Mausiki Scales and the Common Ground Collective, Friends and Neighbors, and Sister Sai. GNG was both proud and excited to be part of this innovative idea – allowing a much-loved community event to continue during these ever-changing days.

Georgia Natural Gas is all aboard with Partners in Change, an exciting new virtual mentoring program spear-headed by Atlanta’s own Neil Shorthouse. The company’s employees are dedicated to giving children and young adults the direction they need to change their lives.
It all starts with literacy! For the 2020/2021 school season, Georgia Natural Gas colleagues from all areas of the company will volunteer through TutorMate, an innovative program that facilitates virtual interaction and learning. Each volunteer will assist first and second graders with basic reading skills in the Atlanta Public School system.
GNG is grateful to continue doing its part to give back to the community it serves.
