Blossman Gas Helps to Keep Mississippi Residents Warm with Contribution to State's LIHEAP

OCEAN SPRINGS, Mississippi -- Blossman Propane Gas, Appliance and Service based in Ocean Springs has donated $50,000 to Mississippi’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program, according to a company news release. In total, Blossman Gas contributed $200,000 to four states experiencing the greatest heating shortages.

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program is administered by the Mississippi Department of Human Services, Division of Community Services. It helps keep families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist families with energy costs. LIHEAP provides federally funded assistance in managing costs associated with: home energy bills, energy crises and weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs.

“Due to higher energy costs, which have been compounded by severe propane supply challenges in some parts of the U.S, we understand that there are many people in Mississippi who are suffering with the cold weather conditions,” said Stuart Weidie, President and CEO of Blossman Gas. "We are hearing about broken heaters, job cut backs, paychecks that don’t cover heating
costs that may be running unusually high at this time of year. We are hoping this contribution will help families who are struggling with the cost of heating this year. Through this donation to LIHEAP we hope to alleviate potential life-threatening energy related
emergencies or needed repairs during this prolonged cold snap.”

Blossman Gas is a family and employee owned company based on the philosophy of quality customer service. The company, along with each of its 70 stores, takes pride in community philanthropy and involvement. For more information go to: www.blossmangas.com.
