Employee Volunteerism

Volunteering is at the heart of Nicor Gas’ community programs.

For over 20 years, Nicor Gas has had a formal program, with strong management support. Our volunteers have helped beautify homes, shelters and nature centers, construct homes, sort food and prepare care kits for our neighbors in need. Nicor Gas employees are inextricably woven into the communities we are privileged to serve. We maintain local offices across our service territory to ensure we deliver an exceptional customer experience. We are committed to making a meaningful impact in the communities we serve and believe in giving back to the community.

Annual Volunteer Week in May

Every year, hundreds of Nicor Gas employees, their families and friends volunteer in their local communities as part of Nicor Gas’ Volunteer Week. What was once a one-day effort that occurred on the third Saturday of May, now encompasses an entire week of activities to benefit the communities served by Nicor Gas.
