Give the Gift of Heat

Give the Gift of Heat
Through this service we offer Elders $100 vouchers towards their fuel bills during the winter. The vouchers are coordinated through local utility services and wood vendors, so that the Elders can determine if they want to use them for wood, propane, or electric heat. It gets extremely cold and windy on the Plains in the winter. Temperatures drop below freezing frequently. The winter winds can be brutal, blowing up to 60 miles an hour regularly, making the temperatures feel even colder. Because many of the homes are in poor repair, heating costs are higher. It takes more to heat a drafty house and with fuel costs continually rising, this voucher can mean the difference between warmth and bitter cold.
