Energy assistance for low-income Oregon families

Summer's Here, It's Hard to Think About Being Cold

Oregon HEAT was busy all winter long helping Oregon families stay in a warm and well-lit home.  In fact over 15,000 individuals in Oregon were helped with their emergency energy assistance.  Now that summer is here, most of us are thinking about bar-b-ques, picnics and walks on the warm sandy beaches.  It is hard to imagine during the several months coming up that anyone would worry about a cold and dark house.  Oregon HEAT raises funds year round and even in the hot summer months when you are thinking about nice ice cold drinks and splashing into the backyard pool, we know that there will be many families who will need help with their energy bills this upcoming winter.  So we ask all of you while you’re enjoying the cool summer breezes and a nice cold tropical drink that if you have some extra dollars to donate, Oregon HEAT is collecting for our next winter when there will be thousands of Oregon families who will need our help.
