We’ll be shredding Christmas trees for contributions to Project Care and turning them into mulch for local gardeners on Saturday, January 7th next to our office at 2129 N. Coast Highway in Newport. What is Project Care? It’s a program that assists folks facing extreme financial events to pay for heat and light. Generous customers make contributions by asking us to add a set amount to their bills each month to donate to Project Care, or donors may choose to add a contribution on their payment stub on the line provided, and add the amount of that donation to their payment.
Round Up is another simple but effective way to help out. Donors’ bills are rounded up to the next dollar, and the extra pennies collected go to Project Care. While the average Round Up donation is 51 cents a month, the most Round Up could cost is $11.88 a year. If most of our customers participated in Round Up, some $18,000 a month would be available to help local people in need. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write “Sign me up for Round Up” on your payment stub, or call us to sign up or with questions about Project Care. Funds donated are distributed by nonprofits in our District, and contributions are tax-deductible. Thank you!
