Dollar Energy Fund raised more than $147,000 during its 9th annual Cool Down for Warmth campaign on January 26, all with the help of local business leaders, sponsors, utility partners and many generous community individuals. The amount raised will provide assistance for approximately 410 families in Western Pennsylvania who are struggling to stay warm in their homes this winter. Though the event is over, donations are still coming in! Those who wish to help local families in need may continue to donate online at www.dollarenergy.org/donate.
Dollar Energy Fund’s Cool Down for Warmth, powered by Dynegy, took place in partnership with KDKA-TV’s Pittsburgh Today Live (PTL), and provided an opportunity for the community to make a donation in support of local families. This year, Mastro Gourmet Quality Ice built an ice news desk in Gateway Center that were showcased during PTL’s live broadcast and during KDKA-TV weather segments.
Donors made contributions through Dollar Energy Fund’s website or on Givebutter, where groups like Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Public Utility Law Section utilized the crowd funding platform to raise funds towards the cause.
All donations from this event were matched dollar-for-dollar by our local utility partners and 100% will go directly to support local Western Pennsylvania families who are struggling to restore or maintain basic utility service.
Dollar Energy Fund is grateful for the overwhelming support of our generous utility partners and sponsors, including Dynegy, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Duquesne Light Company, FirstEnergy, Peoples, Citizens Bank, EQT, First Commonwealth Bank, and UPMC.
On behalf of the limited-income households we will continue to assist this year, thank you to everyone who supported our event! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates on future fundraisers, like our Warmathon taking place on February 16.
Your contribution directly supports an individual or family facing a utility crisis.
