Seattle City Light employees raise funds for customers in need - support for Project Share

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Seattle City Light’s annual Warm Hearts, Warm Homes event raised over $5,100 February 13 for three Washington charities. The Valentine’s Day fundraiser supports our community members in need through employee contributions.

Seattle employees donated $4,160 to Project Share, an emergency assistance fund that offers one-time help paying utility bills for those who have fallen on hard times. Project Share is fully funded by customer and employee contributions. Since 1985, $7.8 million has been shared with more than 32,500 income-eligible families and individuals, at an average amount of $240.

You can contribute to Project Share by rounding up your electricity bill to the next dollar, or by making an individual contribution. Your donations are tax deductible and help to keep the lights and the heat on for families in our region. For more information or to contribute, visit Seattle City Light’s Project Share webpage.

Dedicated employees at the Boundary Hydroelectric Project in northeast Washington raised $700 for Pend Oreille County’s Neighbors in Need program. Neighbors in Need keeps customers facing financial hardship from losing their heat or electricity.

Skagit Hydroelectric Project employees in Newhalem and Diablo raised $305 to support the Skagit County Community Action Agency’s Warm Home Fund, which assists at-risk low-income households with their electric and heat bills.
