Tomorrow is National Good Neighbor Day – a day created to recognize the importance of good neighbors in our communities. One way you can participate is to consider a donation to Kissimmee Utility Authority’s Good Neighbor Utility Assistance Fund. The fund is a voluntary customer contributory program that helps KUA customers experiencing financial difficulty pay their electric bills in emergency situations.
This program is designed so that customers who can afford to – and want to help others – can make voluntary contributions to the fund. It’s a small gift that could really make a difference in the lives of families experiencing temporary problems in this time of economic uncertainty.
The donations collected through the fund are turned over to Osceola County Council on Aging, which is responsible for administering all funds donated through the program. KUA matches dollar for dollar, all contributions made by its customers. So that means for every dollar you contribute, $2 goes to help your neighbors, doubling the impact of your generosity.
It’s easy to be a Good Neighbor. Contributions to the fund can be made in several different ways:
Download the pledge card here sign it and return it with your bill payment, or you can send it directly to KUA at Good Neighbor Utility Assistance Fund, Kissimmee Utility Authority, 1701 W. Carroll Street in Kissimmee. The amount of donation you select on the pledge card will be added as a line item to your utility bill beginning the following month. One-time contributions to the fund are also welcomed. Send a separate check or money order along with the completed pledge card with your utility payment.
Donations can also be made via credit cards. Visit our Good Neighbor Fund page and click the “Donate” button. No PayPal account is needed to use this payment method.
Sign up for Good Neighbor Round Up of monthly bills.
No matter how you contribute your donation is tax-deductible and KUA will provide you with a record of your previous year’s donation the first of each year.
