Consumers Energy is contributing $2 million to four non-profit organizations helping Michigan residents stay safe and warm for the winter.

The contribution to the United Way of Jackson County, TrueNorth Community Services, The Salvation Army, and The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) will help as many as 2,500 households in Consumers Energy’s CARE program. The CARE program provides monthly credits toward energy bills as well as forgiveness of past-due balances. Participants also qualify for energy-saving tools, including free in-home energy efficiency upgrades.

Consumers Energy encourages people who are facing hardship with energy bills or other needs to call 2-1-1, a free service in all Michigan counties that connects people with resources to help in their community.

“We want people to know that help is always available and is just a phone call away” said Patti Poppe, Consumers Energy’s President and Chief Executive Officer. The largest energy provider in Michigan reminds customers not to fall behind on their bills before reaching out for help. This month Consumers Energy will also include information about available energy assistance options in all residential bills.

Poppe says “People can take steps now to ensure they stay warm even on Michigan’s coldest days.”
