Hundreds joined us for the Race for Warmth to support Operation Warm Heart, a Clark Public Utilities customer-funded program to help limited-income families in crisis situations who need help paying their electric bills.
The first annual Race for Warmth in 2015 raised more than $20,000 for this critical assistance program. Since its creation in 1985, Operation Warm Heart has provided nearly $2.4 million to about 11,000 customers who are barely making ends meet, but don’t qualify for other government programs that could help them pay their winter bills. As other sources of aid continue to be cut, more of our customers rely on Operation Warm Heart for assistance. For more than 20 years, Clark Public Utilities customers and employees have generously funded Operation Warm Heart. Those customer contributions provide a perpetual source of funding to help low-income families in crisis.
Your participation helps to raise awareness and funds to help our neighbors in need.
