2023 Year-End Round-Up: $60,000 in Donations to Local Georgia Charities

At SCANA Energy, we believe it’s important to support the communities we serve. One of the ways we do this is through our Organization of the Month initiative. Through the Organization of the Month program, we can highlight issues on social media in a meaningful way while garnering community involvement. By donating $5,000 to a different local charity each month, we’re able to help those in need and share information with our customers.

Each month, we look for an organization that aligns with our main focuses: children’s welfare and the environment.

It has been an incredible way to learn more about issues in our community, get to know local philanthropists, and aid those in need.
