KISSIMMEE , Fla., Nov. 30, 2006 – Can’t find the perfect holiday gift for a family member, friend, employee, customer or client? Try a Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) gift card — something everyone can appreciate!

KUA gift cards are convenient to give and useful to receive. Think of the jolt of joy you’ll feel when you send them to friends and relatives or to help someone you care about. Think of the charge you’ll get from giving.

Recipients can use the gift cards to pay all or part of their monthly KUA bill. Instead of working like a traditional gift card, which can be lost, stolen or thrown away, a KUA gift card is a monetary credit placed directly on a customer’s KUA account. The credit is then subtracted from the customer’s next utility bill.

The cards are available in any amount and can be customized with a brief personal message.

Gift-givers may choose to remain anonymous or receive a seasonal card to deliver to the recipient. No additional service or activation fees or costs are charged.

“Many churches, service organizations and generous individuals look for practical gifts that directly benefit those less fortunate. A gift card from KUA gives a thoughtful, helpful boost for anyone dealing with a tight budget,” said Chris Gent, KUA’s manager of corporate communications.

“The gift cards don’t have the buyer’s name on them, so you can play Santa Claus and anonymously help someone in your family, your neighborhood or your place of worship,” Gent added.

KUA’s gift cards offer time-saving convenience to shoppers who crave variety and choice when buying a gift, without facing the crowds at the mall. The gift cards can be purchased at KUA’s customer service center or through the mail by sending a check or money order. Requests should be sent to: KUA Gift Certificates, P.O. Box 423219, Kissimmee, FL 34742-3219.

Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric, water and telecommunication services to 170,000 residents in five Central Florida counties.
