During the winter months, living expenses typically increase due to the need to heat our homes because of extreme temperatures. This added expense can make it difficult for families who already struggle to make ends meet. Thanks to Peninsula Light Company, there’s a way our members can help.
Project Help is a program designed to help income-qualifying families with up to $200 of support each year. The program provides funds through a partnership with Key Peninsula Community Services to offset those who need assistance with their electric bill. Project Help operates each year from November through April and is an easy way for members to make tax-deductible contributions to help those in need. Every dollar goes to help your neighbors in need, as PenLight does not deduct any administrative costs. The best part is PenLight will match your donations dollar for dollar.
PenLight members can donate to help their neighbors in one of three ways:
- A one-time gift.
- A recurring monthly donation.
- Rounding up your bill each month to the nearest whole dollar.
Our goal is to encourage one-third of our membership–approximately 10,000 members – to sign up to help our neighbors through the Project Help program. You can help by visiting our Project Help page or by calling our Member Services department at 253-857-5950.
