Bringing Joy to Hospitalized Children this Holiday Season

Submitted by fp-admin on Fri, 12/18/2020 - 08:15

This year, the Sempra Energy Foundation is making donations to organizations that serve children spending their holidays in the hospital — and their families — on behalf of Sempra Energy employees.

The Sempra Energy Foundation is issuing grants totaling $400,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities and children’s hospitals across our service areas for their holiday programs that provide toys, meals and holiday cheer. In addition, Sempra Energy employees were invited to make personal contributions that were matched by the Sempra Energy Foundation, raising another $46,000 in donations.

“While giving and volunteering may look different this year because of the pandemic, our commitment to people in need hasn’t changed,” said Molly Cartmill, chief stewardship officer at the Sempra Energy Foundation. “The Sempra Energy Foundation and entire Sempra Energy family of companies are committed to the communities where we operate and are happy to support organizations, such as children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald House Charities, who continue to do great work in supporting families experiencing medical hardship.”
