Winter 2018: An Important Connection
While John, a retired veteran, had typically paid his bills in a timely manner, a serious medical issue put him in the hospital and everything at his house took a backseat. When his electricity was turned off after he fell behind in paying his bills, a friend of John’s contacted the utility company to let them know about the situation. The utility representative listened and understood John’s circumstances and helped by contacting Oregon Energy Fund. Oregon Energy Fund was able to offer John assistance that got his power back on and helped him catch up on his bills so he could get a fresh start.
