NW Natural Customers Help Provide a Safe Place for Kids After School and During Summer

Paperless Billing Campaign Raises $15,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs

PORTLAND, Ore. — NW Natural (NYSE:NWN) customers stepped up to aid seven Boys & Girls Clubs across Oregon and Southwest Washington by enrolling in paperless billing, which also helps the environment by using less paper.

During a two-month period, NW Natural’s Corporate Philanthropy Fund donated $5 for every customer that signed up. The goal was to have 3,000 customers enroll and since that was met, clubs in Albany, Corvallis, Emerald Valley (Eugene), Portland, Salem, Southwest Oregon (Coos Bay) and Southwest Washington will all receive donations.

“We’re truly thankful for those who took the time to support Boys & Girls Clubs,” said Von Summers, NW Natural community affairs manager. “We can always count on our customers to lend a hand to programs that provide critical services for others.”

Signing up for paperless billing is easy:

1. Log into your NW Natural online profile at nwnatural.com. If you don’t have a profile, registration is quick.

2. Choose "Go Paperless," then enroll.

3. Start receiving your gas bill online each month.

Benefits include instant, easy access to up to three years of energy-use and bill history, 24 hours a day — from a computer, mobile phone, tablet or any other device connected to the Internet.
