(Bethlehem, Pa.) – Today, PennEast Pipeline Company presented the Lehigh Valley Chapter of Pink Heals a PennEast Community Connector Grant of $5,000.

An affiliate of the National Pink Heals organization, Lehigh Valley Pink Heals will use its grant to support ongoing fundraising for local women and their families affected by a range of health issues.

“Lehigh Valley Pink Heals helps local women facing not only cancer, but domestic violence, multiple sclerosis and more,” said William Andress, executive director of the Lehigh Valley Chapter. “We’re known throughout the area for our iconic pink fire truck, and thanks to PennEast’s support, we’ll be able to soon add a restored pink ambulance to help our efforts.”

The Chapter’s forthcoming pink ambulance will join the pink fire truck at community events. Both vehicles will not only raise awareness for women’s health, but they will also serve as rolling autograph tablets. Individuals will be encouraged to sign the vehicles either in honor of loved ones who are battling illnesses or in their memory.

“We are proud to support the work of Pink Heals and excited to know that our Community Connector Grant will go a long way to support further fundraising for women and their families in the Lehigh Valley,” said Pam Witmer of PennEast Pipeline Company. “Lehigh Valley Pink Heals literally serves with distinction as their pink fire truck cannot be missed; we’re proud to help support their growth with the much anticipated addition of their pink ambulance.”

PennEast has contributed more than $400,000 through its Community Connector Grant Program to communities along the proposed PennEast Pipeline route. Through its grant program, sponsorships and volunteer efforts, PennEast is committed to supporting local organizations like Pink Heals.
