November 30 is Giving Tuesday, the unofficial holiday when, after saving a lot of money while shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, people feel compelled to give back.
If you are looking to help your low-income neighbors, without having to give a lot this Giving Tuesday, Benton REA’s Power to Care program is for you.
Power To Care allows Benton REA members to round up their monthly electric bills to the nearest dollar, donating the spare change to a fund that helps fellow members pay their past-due electric bills.
The average donation is just $6 a year. Benton REA members may enroll:
Nonmembers who wish to contribute—including individuals, businesses or community organizations—may call 509-786-2913.
As of October 15, 2021, 30 members have received funding for a total of $6,950 given back. Four hundred eighty-eight members are enrolled and giving a monthly amount to Power to Care.
