Seattle City Light employees showed they care about those less fortunate in their communities during a Valentine’s Day fundraiser.

Seattle based-employees raised about $3,800 to support Project Share, an emergency assistance fund that provides one-time help paying utility bills for customers in financial distress. Project Share provided one-time emergency assistance to 911 people in 2012 worth a combined $223,000.

Donors who gave at least $5 were rewarded with a delicious cupcake from Rainier Beach-based Borracchini’s Bakery. Borracchini’s provided the cupcakes to the fundraising campaign at cost.

You can join in the 2013 Project Share Warm Hearts – Warm Homes campaign with an individual contribution or by rounding up your electricity bill to the next dollar. Learn more.

Seattle City Light is the 10th largest public electric utility in the United States. It has some of the lowest cost customer rates of any urban utility, providing reliable, renewable and environmentally responsible power to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents. City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the nation to achieve that distinction.
