Since the inception of the MVP project, Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC, has worked with community partners along the 303-mile route to identify and support charitable causes that strengthen public safety, education and safety net programs.
These efforts have included:
- Donations of funding and materials, including steel pipe, to the Pittsylvania County, Virginia, Career and Tech Center;
- Personal protective equipment, tools and funding to purchase utility vehicles for volunteer fire departments in Virginia and West Virginia;
- Funds to support school and recreational programs and building repairs in Virginia and West Virginia; and
- Emergency financial relief during the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing financial support of food banks and other community-based service groups.
“Economic uncertainties, job losses, and unexpected emergencies have left numerous households in vulnerable situations, making it difficult for them to provide basic necessities for their children and families,” said J. Chad Morrison, chief executive officer of the Mountaineer FoodBank. Contributions from Mountain Valley Pipeline and other donors have played “an instrumental role in ensuring that children, seniors, veterans, and families are provided with nutritious food when they need it most.”
As of June 2023, Mountain Valley donated nearly $1.2 million to fund various local organizations, community events, and educational programs through its local giving program. These contributions are in addition to the more than $82 million that Mountain Valley has provided for voluntary and regulatory conservation and environmental stewardship efforts.
