It’s Time to Help Your Neighbors Stay Warm This Winter
Pacific Power is once again helping the people stay warm in Yakima by helping them pay for their utility bills through their Project Help 2-for-1 program.
For every $1 donated to Project Help Pacific Power will match it with $2. Project Help 2-for-1 is administered by The Salvation Army in the Walla Walla, Yakima and Grandview areas, and Northwest Community Action Center in the Toppenish and Sunnyside areas. A press release says they verify eligibility and allocate funds to those in need.
Pacific Power officials say all funds donated in Yakima are used to assist families in need from Yakima County. Every year the program helps more than 500 low income households helping to pay their utilitiy bills.
Look for the envelope in your bill or look online
Pacific Power customers who receive their bills by mail will find it includes a Project HELP contribution envelope in this month.
Customers who pay their bills electronically can send a check or enroll in the fixed donation program. That program allows customers to donate any dollar amount, starting at $1 per month, which is then incorporated into their monthly bill.
Fixed donations will also be matched 2-for-1 by Pacific Power. To enroll in the fixed donation program call Pacific Power toll-free at 1-888-221-7070.
If you are a residential or business customer donations are tax deductible.
