People You Know: Business, June 30
Columbia Gas recently presented a $500 check to Keep York Beautiful to help support cleanup and beautification efforts in York City. Also, preparations are being made for a local community service project with employees of Columbia Gas.
In recognition of Earth Day, Giant Food Stores donated 25 benches made from recycled plastic bags to Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful's Litter Free School Zone Program as part of its ongoing Bags to Benches initiative. Two benches were delivered in York County: Dillsburg and Wellsville elementary schools, both in the Northern York County School District. Customers can recycle plastic bags at any Giant store. It takes about 10,000 plastic bags to make one park bench. For more information, visit www.giantfoodstores.com/environment.
