It can be easy to take simple things for granted, such as having a warm home to fend off the winter cold. Many families, and especially seniors, struggle to pay their utility bills and risk facing the winter without heat.
The Dollar Energy Fund will host its annual Warmathon in Pittsburgh, PA on February 13th and 14th. This 2-day radio telethon will raise funds to support the organization’s Hardship Program, which helps limited-income families maintain safe utility service. Since 2009, the Warmathon has raised enough money to help approximately 9,500 families in Western Pennsylvania.
“The support we receive will make a significant difference in the lives of those who simply need a one-time grant to avoid termination of their utility services,” – Chad Quinn, Dollar Energy Fund CEO
