United Way of the Eastern Panhandle is proud to announce the launch of the Warming Hands and Hearts fundraising drive, which will run through April 30th. The Initiative is designed to provide assistance to families and individuals in need of help with heating costs.
Warming Hands and Hearts is a partnership between United Way of the Eastern Panhandle, the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), and the Regional Resource Connection (RRC) and is sponsored by Roach Energy.
Applications for heating assistance through Warming Hands and Hearts are screened by the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) and the Regional Resource Connection (RRC). Together, these organizations will screen and process applications for heating assistance, ensuring that the help goes to those who need it most.
With the coordinated efforts of the RRC, Warming Hands and Hearts goes beyond financial assistance by providing a case manager who contacts the utility company on behalf of the client. Negotiated payment arrangements and financial management information are also provided.
United Way of the Eastern Panhandle continues to manage the fund with no administrative fees.
"We are grateful for the support of Roach Energy. Their $2500 contribution will go a long way in helping United Way of the Eastern Panhandle reach our goal of assisting families and individuals in need of heating assistance during the winter months.” said CEO Penny Porter.
Those interested in applying for assistance through the Warming Hands and Hearts Initiative are encouraged to contact the Department of Health and Human Resources for more information.
