A recent recipient shared how EnergyHELP helped him during hard times.
“Please let everyone know I am very thankful. Thank you to all who donate and are part of this program. I am a senior on a set income and with rent being so high, I barely have any money left.”
How it works
By contributing to EnergyHELP, 100% of your contribution will go towards helping a qualified customer pay their electric bill. We’ll also connect the recipient with the charity you choose. This enables the recipient to receive additional services like food, clothing, job training and childcare.
