Dollar Energy Fund raised $156,238 during its Cool Down for Warmth event on Jan. 24 and 25, all with the help of local business leaders, sponsors, utility partners and many generous community individuals. The amount raised will provide assistance for approximately 447 Pittsburgh families and individuals who are struggling to afford safe utility service 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.
Over the course of the two-day event, many supporters sat in Dollar Energy Fund’s giant ice house in Market Square to raise funds and awareness for the thousands of families in our region without heat-related utility service. Many individuals and teams exceeded their fundraising goals, including Walter Bridges of Proforma, Morgan O’Brien of Peoples Natural Gas, Dave Spigelmyer of Marcellus Shale Coalition, Dollar Energy Fund’s Board of Directors, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Duquesne Light Company, and FirstEnergy.
Duquesne Light’s Subzero Heroes team and Morgan O’Brien from Peoples Natural Gas both surpassed their initial goal of $10,000. Others showed their support by visiting the house and participating in our Bowls for Warmth event.
During construction of the ice house and throughout the event, hundreds of downtown Pittsburgh employees passed through Market Square to see the house, take a tour and contribute to the event. Attendees also enjoyed the Dunkin’ Donuts Selfie Wall of Ice, Citizens Bank Ice ATM, Xfinity Ice Television, and the Dormont Appliance Custom Ice Kitchen. Attendees also received numerous giveaways from Dunkin’ Donuts, Chick-fil-A, McCormick & Schmicks, Eat’n Park and Pitt Basketball.
Many restaurants donated their time and resources to participate in the Bowls for Warmth Soup Tasting, presented by BNY Mellon, including Bluebird Kitchen, Braddock’s Rebellion, Coughlin’s Law, fl. 2 at Fairmont Pittsburgh, Gateway Cafe, Harris Grill, Lidia’s, Market St. Grocery, McCormick & Schmick’s, Molinaro Ristorante, NOLA on the Square, OTB Bicycle Cafe, Primanti Bros., Revel + Roost, Sienna on the Square, The Smiling Moose, Social House Seven, Ten Penny, Twelve Whiskey Barbeque, and Vallozzi’s. Bowls for Warmth received a great response from the community, causing the event to bring in over $20,000 in donations. In addition, attendees voted for their favorite soup. The winner of the People’s Choice Award was Revel + Roost’s Mushroom and Bacon Bisque and Pennsylvania Beer Cheese Soup.
Dollar Energy Fund is grateful for the overwhelming support of our generous utility partners and sponsors, including UPMC, Peoples Natural Gas, Columbia Gas, Duquesne Light, FirstEnergy, Comcast Internet Essentials, BNY Mellon, Dunkin’ Donuts, Citizens Bank, Dormont Appliance, Metropolitan Club on the Square, Range Resources, Deep Well Services, Pitt Athletics, Chick-fil-A, McCormick & Schmick’s, Eat’n Park, Pittsburgh Penguins, Mastro Gourmet Quality Ice, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 94.5 3WS, Proforma, Clark’s Studio, and SouthHillsAuto.com.

The holidays are upon us and they usually bring sky-high energy bills. You might be looking to save a few extra bucks without skimping on the holiday cheer. Keep these tips in mind while decorating for the holidays:
Switch to energy-efficient LED lights
Incandescent holiday light strings might make you feel nostalgic, but that feeling will quickly disappear when you see your electric bill. Save money by using LED light strands. They are brighter, safer and use more than 70% less energy than traditional bulbs.
Limited hourly usage
Use timers for your indoor and outdoor decorations to automatically turn on when it gets dark and turn off in the middle of the night. Limit displays to 8 hours or less to save a bundle!
Not all decorations need to be plugged in. Reflective ornaments and tinsel make the perfect complement to traditional string lights and create the shimmer and shine you were going for. Ribbons, wreaths and garlands are also great alternatives for indoor and outdoor decor.
Don’t be Clark Griswold
Relax! Don’t recreate the Griswold home from the 1989’s classic “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Be safe, have fun, but remember – the more you plug in, the more you pay.

The staff at Topgolf worked diligently to provide golfers with drinks and instructions on how to play a variety of Topgolf games. Guests also enjoyed a delicious lunch buffet, networked with friends and won door prizes.
This event was made possible through a partnership with Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania. We are very grateful for their ongoing support in helping the community.

Thank you to all of our event sponsors, including Bob Scullion & Associates, Pittsburgh Technical College, Enscoe Long Insurance Group, Mass Mutual Pittsburgh, Baron Heating & Air Conditioning, Kelly Services, Fort Pitt Capital Group, Burns White, AEC Group, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Aflac.

Starting December 3, the Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor Program will be accepting applications for utility assistance grants for the 2018-2019 winter heating season. Through a partnership between AEP Ohio, an American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) company, and Dollar Energy Fund, eligible AEP Ohio customers who need help during the winter months can apply for financial assistance to maintain or restore their electric service.
This Fund is one of the largest of its kind in the country and may provide assistance once per program year (10/1/2018 – 9/30/2019) to families facing an immediate utility crisis. With help from the Neighbor to Neighbor Program, families in need can receive a grant, which is applied directly to their AEP Ohio account, to prevent disconnection from occurring or to restore their electric service. The program will accept applications from households seeking heating assistance on a first-come, first-served basis through April 30, 2019, while funds are available.
AEP Ohio and Dollar Energy Fund launched the Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor Program in May 2009 and have helped more than 54,000 Ohio households with more than $13 million in utility assistance grants.
“The early period of winter weather we’ve experienced recently is a reminder of how Ohio winters can be brutally cold, very unpredictable, and extremely challenging for many people, especially the elderly and those with health problems,” said Katie Grayem, director of Customer Experience for AEP Ohio. “For many Ohio families, heating their homes during this time can also pose a difficult financial burden. Being a good community partner and neighbor is who we are and what we do, and we are committed to giving our neighbors, who may struggle to make ends meet, a helping hand to ensure their electric service stays connected.”
To qualify, an applicant’s total gross household income must be at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. For example, a family of four earning up to $50,200 per year is income eligible for the program.
Households must have made a sincere effort of payment of $75 on their electric bill in the last 90 days and have a minimum balance of $50 due on their AEP Ohio bill. Customers may apply for assistance through the Neighbor to Neighbor Program network of more than 120 Ohio community-based organizations. Full eligibility guidelines, a list of organizations accepting applications, and information on how to make a donation to the Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor program are available at AEPOhio.com/helpaneighbor.
“Neighbor to Neighbor has become a program that serves the families who find themselves in a temporary financial situation due to an unexpected expense or loss of income,” said Chad Quinn, chief executive officer of Dollar Energy Fund. “The Neighbor to Neighbor Program is available to lend a helping hand to Ohioans who may be struggling to keep food on the table or cover all other household costs.”
The AEP Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor Program in Ohio is funded by public contributions that are matched dollar-for-dollar by AEP Ohio. Utility customers may make a contribution through their monthly AEP Ohio bill. Donations also can be made online at AEPOhio.com/helpaneighbor or by sending a check directly to the Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor Program, Box 42329, Pittsburgh, PA 15203. Every donation to the Neighbor to Neighbor Program is used to assist eligible families residing in Ohio. Every dollar donated to the AEP Ohio Neighbor to Neighbor program will be matched by AEP Ohio. All matching funds and 100 percent of the donations assist limited-income families residing in Ohio to afford utility service.
For more information about Dollar Energy Fund and how to apply for the Neighbor to Neighbor Program or donate to the organization, visit www.dollarenergy.org.
In addition to AEP Ohio, Appalachian Power in West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee started accepting applications on December 3. Full program guidelines can be found by visiting www.dollarenergy.org/need-help.

Through the combined effort of 3WS Pittsburgh and our supporters, the Winter Warm Up Request-A-Thon raised $93,872 to benefit Dollar Energy Fund and our neighbors in need. The amount raised will provide utility assistance to more than 260 Pittsburgh households who are struggling to stay warm during this cold winter.
Our second Winter Warm Up Request-A-Thon took place on November 13 and 14, 2018. 94.5 3WS and Dollar Energy Fund teamed up to bring the community a fun way to help families in our region stay warm. Over the course of the two-day event, 3WS listeners took over the station with their song requests. In exchange for a donation, listeners could request any song and many were invited to talk live with the on-air talent Jonny Hartwell, Bonny Diver, Sheri Van Dyke, and Mike Frazer. A variety of donation incentives were also available during the event, such as autographed sports items, gift certificates and event tickets.
