We are excited to announce our 4th Annual Eat for Heat!
Please join us for our largest fundraiser of the year, Cowlitz PUD's 4th Annual Eat for Heat, Farm to Your Table meal kits for two. Simply pick up your meal kit at your designated location, prepare an easy to follow dinner for two that includes an appetizer, salad, starch, side and a main course of an 8 oz cut of red meat and a 1lb chicken breast, and a homemade dessert. Also included is your choice of a local libation from either 38 Mile Brewery or Roland Wines. These meal kits can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home or combined with your most favorite friends. Last year was our first year of hosting this event through meal kits and so many folks who work all week, mentioned how nice it was to have an easy to prepare meal kit ready to go for a relaxing Friday evening. This event promotes local restaurants while 100% of the profits go towards the Warm Neighbor Fund.
On September 30th, the Utility Moratorium will be lifted and we will see an increase in the need for Warm Neighbor funds to assist impacted families. Our Warm Neighbor program 100% assists low income families with their PUD bills. The cool thing about this program is that it is able to help families without them having to qualify for federal assistance. The current federal qualifications requires anyone who receives assistance to qualify at the federal poverty level - which is a threshold of 26k for a family of four, meaning if you make even a dollar over that amount, you are not qualified for assistance. Cowlitz County has 1 in 3 families struggling to pay their bills and 85% of single mothers are unable to afford their bills – Warm Neighbor is able to help those types of families. Please join us for our largest annual fundraiser, Eat for Heat.
