Warm Homes, Warm Hearts

The power of neighbors helping neighbors

Join us in helping those in need of utility assistance by donating to the Warm Homes, Warm Hearts year-round campaign.

The money from Warm Homes, Warm Hearts assists neighbors in need with their electricity bill to avoid disconnection. To have electricity means a working refrigerator and air conditioning in the hot summer months and heat in the coldest part of winter.

Every year, BEMC provides up to $50,000 in matching funds for all donations from the community. The donated funds may help an elderly resident, a struggling young family, or someone who has been overwhelmed with unexpected medical bills or a job layoff.
