Help those in need through SHARE
Cooling expenses in summer, heating costs in winter -- in either season, high energy bills can be a burden to individuals and families already in crisis.
For more than 20 years The Salvation Army has teamed up with several state utility companies and area utility customers to provide financial assistance to those in need through SHARE -- Service to Help Arizonans with Relief on Energy.
By adding $1 or more to your electric or gas bill each month, you can help fill an important community need through SHARE. Your contribution to SHARE can make a big difference in people's lives, now more than ever before. More SHARE funds are needed this year to keep up with growing community needs.
Emergency assistance is given to people who, due to crisis situations, are unable to pay their basic household energy bills and have exhausted all other potential sources of aid. Assistance is limited to one grant per year, per recipient. SHARE is not a welfare or other government-funded program.
Tax-deductible donations are disbursed by The Salvation Army. There are no administrative costs deducted from donations.
In 2010, nearly 7700 families were helped by the generous donations of people like you.
