Piedmont's "Share the Warmth" Program Assists Others in the Community
Piedmont noted in its winter forecast that many individuals and families within the communities served by the Company are still facing significant economic hardship. "Many of our customers continue to face difficult financial choices and economic challenges," said Piedmont's Skains. "One of the ways we can assist our neighbors who need help is by enrolling in Piedmont's Share the Warmth Round Up Program where we can sign up to have our monthly natural gas bills rounded up to the nearest dollar. The amount rounded up goes to provide emergency energy assistance funds to individuals and families within the communities Piedmont serves, regardless of what energy is used in the home or what time of year the need arises."
For those customers who want to learn more about the Share the Warmth Round Up Program or to enroll in the program, they are encouraged to visit Piedmont's website at www.piedmontng.com.
