$1 a month can make a difference
Cold temperatures and high electric bills make it tough for many in our community this time of year. Give the gift of warmth to someone who needs help paying their electric bill by donating to Benton PUD's Helping Hands program. Stop by one of our offices and make a $1 or more recurring donation or increase your monthly recurring donation and you will receive either an advanced power strip or energy efficiency kit that includes two LED light bulbs and a low flow shower head. Both options are available while supplies last. For each donation, we'll add an ornament to the display in our lobby.
