Kentucky Utilities Pledges More Help for Winter Assistance

KU will match $2 for every $1 donated by residential customers.
In an effort to help the community's most disadvantaged citizens pay heating bills during the winter months, Kentucky Utilities Company announced Thursday it will match $2 for every $1 donated by residential customers to Wintercare, the utility's primary heating assistance program.

KU will continue to do so through the end of March 2014.

"Due to the delay of the distribution of Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funds caused by the federal government shutdown, we felt it was important to go above and beyond the usual $1 for $1 match," said Cheryl Bruner, customer service and marketing director for LG&E and KU. "We encourage customers to join what thousands of their neighbors are doing and consider making a tax-deductible donation to this program as well."

Wintercare is a third-party nonprofit organization that helps customers in financial crises pay their heating bills.

Residential customers may donate to Wintercare by making a monthly pledge or a one-time contribution.
