Rocky Mountain Power asking customers to help Lend a Hand to those in need

November 09, 2020

SALT LAKE CITY — The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the need in Utah communities. This month Rocky Mountain Power is making it easy to help struggling families stay warm and safe.

Rocky Mountain Power will match every dollar you donate to the Lend a Hand Program with $2 more, which helps limited-income customers keep their lights on and their homes warm.

So far this year, Rocky Mountain Power donations helped more than 1,050 households in need throughout Utah.

“These donations are helping the elderly, disabled individuals and struggling families in our community,” said Lucky Morse, Rocky Mountain Power director of community relations. “We appreciate our customers’ generous support for this great program.”

Customers who receive their bills by mail will find a Lend a Hand contribution envelope included. Those who pay their bills electronically can request a donation envelope and send a check or enroll in the fixed donation program.

The program allows customers to donate any dollar amount, starting at $1 per month, which is then incorporated into their monthly bill. Fixed donations will also be matched 2-for-1 by Rocky Mountain Power and customers can call 1-888-221-7070 to enroll and/or request a contribution envelope.

All donations are forwarded directly to the Salvation Army, which verifies eligibility and allocates funds to those in need.

Customers who need bill assistance themselves can call Rocky Mountain Power representatives at 1-888-221-7070 to get help with payment plans and be directed to other agencies that may assist them.
