Keeping our neighbors warm this winter

We've been chosen as a participating agency for Duke Energy's Share the Warmth program. That means that we'll soon be able to help low income families pay for their heating bills! 
Applications aren't ready yet, so stay tuned if you know someone who could use this help. 
A little background on Share the Warmth: The program started in 1985 and since then has provided more $33 million in heating bill assistance. More than 80 agencies within the Duke Energy service territory in the Carolinas assist in the distribution of the funds.
When our portion of this is up and running, we'll be one of only 2 agencies in Union County participating in the program!  
Funding for Share the Warmth comes from Duke Energy customers, employees and the Duke Energy Foundation. In November, Duke Energy customers receive a bill insert about the STW program. The Duke Energy Foundation will match up to $500,000 in customer contributions during the heating season.
