With the official arrival of winter and cold temperatures in the weather forecast, Pinky Cole, CEO and Founder of Slutty Vegan ATL, has teamed up with Steve Harvey, Emmy® Award-Winning Entertainer, Radio Personality, Businessman and Philanthropist along with Georgia Power to ensure that over 100 Atlanta residents with past-due utility bills were made current or had their services restored in time for the New Year. Slutty Vegan’s philanthropic arm is an additional way Cole’s business model continues to impact the communities in which she serves. The Pinky Cole Foundation focuses on empowering generations of color to win in life, financially, and in the pursuit of their entrepreneurial dreams.
Cole has dedicated her foundation to addressing and meeting the needs of the underserved population in the city that has patronized her popular Slutty Vegan brand since 2018. “Giving back is the core of who we are and what we do. I am excited to team up with The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation and Georgia Power to provide the gift of electricity and gas to those in need. We are looking forward to this continuing partnership,” stated Pinky Cole. “This is another way we are collectively using our platforms to pour into the communities in which we serve and my personal way of saying thank you to the communities that support me year-round.”
Seeing the need of the Atlanta community, Pinky reached out to her friends at the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation; knowing that the Harvey’s had recently moved back to Atlanta, she knew they would be anxious to assist. “With millions of Americans at risk of losing power as massive unpaid bills pile up, it was necessary for us to work with the Pinky Cole Foundation and Georgia Power to pay the turn-off notices for some struggling Georgia Power customers to give some relief. With Mr. and Mrs. Harvey relocating back to Atlanta, Georgia, their goal is to be a blessing and continue to help those in need, especially during these unprecedented times,” states Sharon Page, Executive Director of the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation.
“We are excited to partner with The Pinky Cole Foundation and The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation in an effort to identify Georgia Power customers who would benefit from utility assistance. The generous donation enabled us to assist more than 100 Atlanta families with their utility bills. This was a joint effort by Georgia Power Corporate Relations and Energy Assistance teams and supports our commitment to be a citizen wherever we serve,” stated Charmaine Ward-Millner and Danny Johnson of Georgia Power.
