2nd Annual Keep The Heat On! Campaign
October 2020 – March 2021
Announcing our 2nd annual Keep The Heat On! fundraising campaign to raise $50,000 for utility assistance, October 1st – March 31, 2021.
Winter is just around the corner, and we are seeing a 51% increase in the number of families requesting utility assistance over 2019. If that isn’t enough, the average utility assistance needed is 16% higher. Through September 2020, HHC has assisted 329 families with $102,305 in utility bills. That is a 78 % increase over the same period in 2019.

= We Need Your Help!
In addition, because of the demand caused by Covid-19, our major funding source for utility assistance has reduced our funding for this year by over $25,000.
Help & Hope Center’s mission is to meet these critical needs of our neighbors who are in danger of having their heat, electricity or water shut off. We are actively seeking new grants and other funding sources to replace those lost funds; however, securing new grant funding will take three to six months or more.
Please help HHC meet this important $50,000 goal!
These families don’t have time to wait. They need help now! Will you be a part of this important effort?
We are asking supporters and friends of Help & Hope Center make an extra donation to help us replace $25,000 in utility assistance funding. In addition, we will need at least an additional $25,000 to help cover the increased need for utility assistance. These funds will be used exclusively for individuals and families facing utility shut-off and will literally help them keep the heat on.
Your generosity will make a real difference in the lives of our Douglas and Elbert county neighbors. Thank you for helping them Keep the Heat On!
