When people ask about Project Help, they inevitably ask why members need help with their electric bills. The answer is as varied as those who complete the paperwork and meet with us to ensure they qualify for this program. Frequently, they are over 65 or older and on a fixed income. Too often, they have just experienced the worst of life’s losses, whether the loss of a spouse, the loss of a job or the loss of their health.

We provide financial relief to ease them through a difficult period. We also help connect them to other organizations for further support.

Your donation stays local, is 100 percent tax deductible and is matched dollar-for-dollar by PenLight. Consider helping your neighbors through Project Help in one or more of these three ways:

  • A one-time gift.
  • A recurring monthly donation.
  • By rounding up each monthly bill to the nearest dollar (average $6 per year).
