How to Give a Gift of Heat & Light

Do you have a family member, friend, or neighbor who is struggling financially? You can help with their heating bills with our “Secret Helpers” program. To make a Secret Helpers donation, mail a check to CLPUD, PO Box 1126, Newport, 97365, and include a note to let us know the name and physical address of the Central Lincoln customer you wish to help. (You can also drop off a donation check with a note at one of our locations or drop boxes.) Please include your phone number in case we have any questions for you. We promise to keep Secret Helpers’ names in confidence.

Our Project Care program also helps those in need pay for heat and light. Donations can be made by emailing us at and letting us know you’d like to sign up for “Round Up” each month. We’ll round your bill to the nearest dollar, and those added pennies will go to Project Care.

Monthly pledges to Project Care are gratefully accepted, too—just call us at 877-265-3211 and press “3” to speak to a Customer Service Representative, Mondays through Thursdays, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

One-time donations to Project Care also make us smile—and the funds go to local nonprofits to assist those who need help with their heating bills. Thank you—and happy holidays!
