Helping our state and local communities is part of who we are at PG&E. It’s the right thing to do."

Beyond the supplies, PG&E and The PG&E Corporation Foundation will donate a combined $1 million to nonprofits for people experiencing food insecurity, small businesses, coronavirus relief funds, food banks, senior meal programs among others.
