Home Energy Aid Month
One month each year Kansas Gas Service Company joins The Salvation Army, the state's two largest electric utilities and other local sponsors to observe Home Energy Aid Month. In communities across the state, various fundraising events are held to raise awareness of the importance of programs such as Share The Warmth to help pay home energy bills for Kansas residents facing a temporary financial crisis.
Other Ways You Can Contribute
Share The Warmth is designed to help Kansas families needing assistance in paying their winter heating bills. To contribute, you may designate a fixed amount each month or request that we round up your monthly bill to the next whole dollar. Either option will automatically add a fixed Share The Warmth contribution to your Kansas Gas Service billing statement. Or, you can include an additional amount along with your bill payment and check the box on your billing statement. Contributions may also be made directly to The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army will distribute contributions to qualifying families - regardless of what fuel is used to generate the warmth.
