Elizabethtown Gas is committed to making a difference in the communities we serve.
We were humbled to receive the 2017 Live United Circle of Excellence award from the the United Way of Greater Union County.
Downtown Westfield 5K & Pizza Extravaganza
In addition to being one of the bronze-level sponsors of this event, we also had a booth to promote our energySMART rebates.
Adopting Vincent's House
Elizabethtown Gas formally adopted Vincent’s House, a house which is owned and operated by the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless. Vincent’s House is designated for working homeless families in need of housing. We presented the Elizabeth Coalition with a $10,000 check.The funds will go towards maintaining and operating the house, social work services, and direct assistance to the families in need.
Tour de Elizabeth
Once again, we were proud to have employees participate in this annual bide riding event. Plus, thanks to all the customers who visited our booth to learn more about energy-saving rebates and tips. Tour de Elizabeth supports Groundwork Elizabeth, an organization that believes in “changing places, changing lives” by “developing community-based partnerships which empower people, businesses and organizations to promote environmental, economic and social well-being.”
Relay for Life
Elizabethtown Gas has been one of the major corporate sponsors of the Relay for Life event in Phillipsburg for the past 10 years. There are several ways our employees support the American Cancer Society: setting up a booth at the event, entering the relay, purchasing luminaria to remember those we have lost and honor those who have survived cancer, and donating supplies for Hope Lodge, where patients can stay at no cost when cancer treatments are far away from home.
The second week in May is Volunteer Week at Elizabethtown Gas. In years past we've won the coveted Golden Broom award for our cleanup efforts in Elizabeth’s “Slam Dunk the Junk” event. This year, we took second place!
Corporate Responsibility Award
Congratulations to Tina Earley, our manager of governmental and community affairs, for being presented with the award for corporate Responsibility from the Elizabethtown Coalition to House the Homeless.

Energy Conserveration Award
Brian MacLean, Elizabethtown Gas president, was recently presented with the energy conservation advocate award by Groundwork Elizabeth.
Canned Food Drive
You could say that our February canned food drive was “super.”
Inspired by the Super Bowl, our employees held a Souper Bowl — a canned food drive turned into a friendly competition where employees divided into teams to collect the most food. Approximately 1,500 cans of food were donated to St. Joseph Social Service Center in Elizabeth and the NORWESCAP Food Bank in Phillipsburg.
A representative from our energy assistance team spent the day with Vets4U in Roselle, educating veterans about energy assistance and weatherization.
