SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power has announced it will match all customer contributions to the Salvation Army’s Lend a Hand program with $2 for each $1 donated.

The program helps limited-income customers keep their power on and their homes warm. Last year, Rocky Mountain Power donations helped 1,148 households in need throughout Utah.

This month, customers who receive their bills by mail will find it includes a Lend a Hand contribution envelope. Those who pay their bills electronically can request a donation envelope, send a check or enroll in the fixed donation program.

The program allows customers to donate any dollar amount, starting at $1 per month, which is then incorporated into their monthly bill. Fixed donations will also be matched $2 for $1 by Rocky Mountain. Customers can call 888-221-7070 to enroll or request a contribution envelope.

All donations are forwarded directly to the Salvation Army, which verifies eligibility and allocates funds to those in need.
