Lights. Air conditioning. Electricity to cook a hot meal. Most of us never dream of going without these basic necessities. But for some Oklahomans, the threat of losing their utilities is all too real.
During Home Energy Aid Month in July, PSO will match donations to the Salvation Army’s energy assistance program. During July, every dollar you give will go twice as far! Visit the Salvation Army Energy Aid Month to donate today.
Stories of Resilience
Mark never thought this could happen to him. He eats healthy and stays fit, but all it took was one misstep. Now the job he loves, caring for people in his nursing home, is a job he cannot do. After hurting his back, Mark cannot lift more than 30 pounds. His wife Stephanie has a good job, but one income for a family of four just isn’t enough. When their utility bill overdue notice came in the mail Mark knew they needed help. The Salvation Army Center of Hope Home Energy Aid program helped Mark and Stephanie cover their overdue bill. By taking care of this bill, Mark and Stephanie can now avoid the complications that come with losing home utilities or worse.
Want to help year-round? You can support energy assistance programs through PSO’s Light A Life program in two key ways:
- Donate a few extra dollars each month to go towards those in need or
- “Keep the Change” by having your monthly bill rounded up to the nearest whole dollar. The difference will be applied to this assistance fund.
