Share the Warmth Providing Heating Assistance to the Less Fortunate

Share the warmth.

The Share the Warmth (STW) program provides financial assistance for heating bills during the winter season for low income families within the Duke Energy service territory in the Carolinas. Since the programís establishment in 1985, we have provided over $33 million in heating bill assistance.

Funding for Share the Warmth comes from Duke Energy customers, employees and the Duke Energy Foundation. In November, Duke Energy customers receive a bill insert about the STW program. The Duke Energy Foundation will match up to $500,000 in customer contributions during the heating season.

Over†80 agencies within the Duke Energy service territory in the Carolinas assist in the distribution of the funds.

Contributions†may be†tax deductible.[1]
