10th Annual Warm Your Hearth, Touch a Heart Campaign
Posted on: September 27, 2018
Each year, more than 200 Butler County households are in need of heat-related utility assistance. Hearth & Home Furnishings and Peoples Natural Gas are teaming up for the 10th Annual Warm Your Hearth, Touch a Heart Campaign to help local, limited-income households maintain or restore basic gas utility service. The kick-off reception will be held on Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hearth & Home Furnishings Showroom in Zelienople (300 N. Main Street, Zelienople, PA 16063).
Following the reception, Hearth & Home Furnishings will donate a portion of their sales to Dollar Energy Fund’s Hardship Program, which provides one-time utility assistance grants to families facing a utility crisis. Peoples will match the donation and all funds will be used to help limited-income families in Butler County stay warm this winter.
Tickets to the kick-off reception are $25 each, with $20 per ticket being donated directly to Dollar Energy Fund. The evening will include food, beverages, music, raffles, and a silent auction. For ticket information, call 724-452-6732. Please RSVP by October 24th.
The Warm Your Hearth, Touch a Heart Campaign has provided more than $150,000 in utility assistance to local households over the past nine years. This amount of funding allowed for approximately 430 local, limited-income families to maintain or restore their basic gas utility service.
