Hot Summer Plans? Don't Forget Your Neighbors!

Oregon HEAT just finished up its heating season at the end of May.  During the season, Oregon HEAT was able to help over 17,000 individuals in Oregon with their emergency energy assistance.  Now that summer is here, well at least on the calendar, most of us are thinking about planning out our summer activities – camping in the woods, picnics in the park, backyard bar-b-ques with friends and families and maybe even a trip to the coast to check out the latest tsunami debris.  It is hard to imagine during the next few months coming up that anyone would worry about a cold and dark house.  Oregon HEAT fundraises year round and even during the heat of summer when you are thinking about your cool summer plans, we know that there will be many families who need help with their energy bills this upcoming winter.  So we ask all of you while you’re enjoying that backyard bar-b-que or the trip to the coast to catch a glimpse of what has washed up on the beach that you take the time, if you have some extra dollars, to donate to our Emergency Energy Assistance Program.  Oregon HEAT is collecting donations for next winter when there will be thousands of Oregon families, maybe even your neighbors, who will need our help.
