Giving back to the community is woven into the culture at Atmos Energy. Atmos team members and executives frequently invest in and volunteer with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas to improve access to education, income and health right here at home.
One of Atmos’ key social impact goals is to encourage bright minds and healthy futures for children. The company’s partnership with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is just one of the ways Atmos advances this important goal. By sponsoring our Vooks program, Atmos enables us to provide free animated storybook subscriptions to children ages 3-6 and early education teachers throughout North Texas.
In addition, Atmos has long led its own Workplace Campaign, with employees generously investing in United Way every year to create opportunity and access so all North Texans can thrive.
We are committed to increasing early learning and literacy, and United Way is the perfect partner to help us achieve the greatest community impact.
Partnership Spotlight: Encouraging Early Literacy
When the COVID-19 pandemic temporarily closed schools across North Texas, parents and teachers alike looked for new and exciting strategies to engage children with learning. It was an opportunity for Atmos Energy to find an innovative way to advance their goal of encouraging bright minds and healthy futures for children. With a focus on improving early education and literacy, Atmos stepped up to sponsor a new United Way partnership with Vooks, which provides free animated storybook subscriptions to children ages 3-6 and early education teachers.
Since its inception in 2020, the partnership has provided Vooks subscriptions to tens of thousands of children, encouraging them to fall in love with reading at an early age. With this partnership, Atmos is directly advancing progress toward our Aspire United 2030 goal of increasing by 50% the number of North Texas third graders who read on grade level.
