Summer Crisis Kickoff Event

This year’s Summer Crisis Kickoff Party, held on July 1, was a great success. The event provided food, fun and health screenings for the 265 customers and family members in attendance. The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) received 140 applications for assistance.

HEAP’s assistance provisions help families with utility payments and provide window air conditioner units for customers with qualifying medical conditions. Appointments to be considered for HEAP can be made through our main office. Additional information on the program and assistance is available on our website.
