Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
If you round up your bill to the nearest dollar each month through the PUD’s “Round-Up” program, your extra change can help a family in need keep the heat on through the winter months.
Project Share is an assistance program that was started in 1983 to assist low-income customers, as certified by Community Action Council, with their electric bills. The program is a joint effort of Mason County PUD No. 3, the Community Action Council (CAC), churches, interested citizens, and PUD 3 customers.
Through the generosity of donors, more than 300 low-income families (as certified by CAC) are helped with a $175 payment on their accounts annually.
To those who have never participated or are not aware of the program, the PUD respectfully asks that you give Project Share some thought. All contributions are allocated to qualified low-income customers, there are no administrative costs.
Your helping hand is a good opportunity for neighbors to help neighbors and your donation is tax deductible.
The PUD extends its appreciation to all who have contributed to the program in the past.
