GASTONIA, N.C. –Dominion Energy is helping families in need prepare for the holidays.

“They raise money year round, and this is the way we spend the money — helping families here at Christmas,” said Dominion Energy Economic Development & Local Government Manager Julie Roper. “So this is the culmination of the year’s fundraising events. The employees are very excited about this event.”
100-percent of donations to the Good Neighbor Fund go directly to help families in need.
