SALT LAKE CITY (Feb. 12, 2019) — This month, Rocky Mountain Power is making it easy to show some love in the form of helping struggling families stay warm and safe.
The utility will match customer donations, $2 for each $1 donated, to the Salvation Army’s Lend a Hand program, which helps limited-income customers keep their lights on and their homes warm.
Last year, Rocky Mountain Power donations helped more than 1,000 households in need throughout Utah.
“These donations are helping the elderly, disabled individuals and struggling families in our community,” said Travis Tanner, Rocky Mountain Power regional business manager. “We appreciate our customers’ generous support for this great program.”
Customers who receive their bills by mail this will find a Lend a Hand contribution envelope included. Those who pay their bills electronically can request a donation envelope and send a check or enroll in the fixed donation program.
The 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 Rocky Mountain Power and customers can call 1-888-221-7070 to enroll and/or request a contribution envelope.
All donations are forwarded directly to the Salvation Army, which verifies eligibility and allocates funds to those in need.
Customers who need bill assistance themselves can call Rocky Mountain Power representatives at 1-888-221-7070 to get help with payment plans and be directed to other agencies that may assist them.
