Columbia Gas Offers Customers Chance To Support Red Cross Chapters

NiSource and Columbia Gas of Kentucky on Friday announced a partnership with the American Red Cross.

For each customer who enrolls in Columbia Gas of Kentucky free Direct e-Bill paperless billing service between now and March 31, 2013, the company will donate $10 to Red Cross chapters across the state, to help provide critical services and lifesaving training for families and individuals in their community including:

  • Disaster preparedness
  • Disaster relief and recovery assistance
  • First aid and CPR training
  • Disease prevention initiatives
  • Blood collections

"We've all witnessed the devastating effects of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy and other emergency events on a national scale," said Herbert A. Miller, Jr., president of Columbia Gas of Kentucky. "But, it's important that we're prepared if something happens in our own backyard. The Red Cross is the organization that can help."

"We thank Columbia Gas of Kentucky and its customers for their support of the Red Cross mission," said Neal Litvack, American Red Cross Chief Development Officer. "This partnership will help ensure that the Red Cross is there, whether we are helping a family recover from a house fire or teaching community members how they can prepare for emergencies."

Signing-up for Direct e-Bill is Free and Simple
The paperless billing option is a free and convenient way for customers to manage their account and help the environment at the same time. Simply visit and select "Manage Your Account" to sign up for free paperless Direct e-Bill services.
Instead of receiving a paper bill in the mail, customers receive an e-mail notification that their utility bill is available to view the same day it's rendered.

E-Bill customers can continue to mail their payment if they prefer. Or, they can pay their bill on-line at no charge and perform other business on their account, such as signing up for the Budget Payment Plan. The e-mail notification also includes a link to electronic versions of monthly bill inserts, customer newsletters and other important account information.
