Can You Help a Struggling Family Member, Friend or Neighbor Anonymously? Absolutely!

We recently received a heartwarming email:

Hi there, my dear friend became unemployed due to the shutdown. She was turned down for unemployment, and I’d like to help with her electricity bill. May I make a payment for her?

We’ve happily taken payments for years to help customers in need while keeping the name of the donor a secret. (We can’t share a customer’s confidential information, such as if their bill is past due, or how much is owing.)

This is a wonderful way to help someone in need without embarrassment. Simply write a check to “CLPUD,” and enclose the check and a note in the envelope letting us know the name and physical address of the customer you wish to help, and your contact phone number—in case we have questions.

Mail to:
PO Box 1126
Newport, OR 97365

Or drop off at one of our drop boxes in front of our offices in Florence, Newport, or Reedsport.

And thank you for wanting to help—we will #PowerOnTogether.
