Kentucky Utilities matching customer donations to families in need

To assist customers having trouble paying their heating bills, Kentucky Utilities is again matching residential customers' donations to Community WinterCare.

With the match in effect through March 31, 2015, the utility encourages customers to consider making a tax-deductible donation by making a monthly pledge or a one-time contribution.

Eligibility for heating assistance benefits is determined by the WinterCare nonprofit organization. KU plays no part in determining eligibility.

Families in need of assistance will be interviewed by WinterCare service partners, usually local Community Action Agencies or other non-profit assistance groups, who customers should call to apply for funds.
