OVERLAND PARK – Feb. 9, 2021 – As colder temperatures have set in, Kansas Gas Service is reminding customers about the Share The Warmth program, which may provide those in financial need with assistance on their heating bill.
Share The Warmth is a partnership between The Salvation Army and Kansas Gas Service that provides energy assistance to senior citizens, individuals with disabilities and those whose immediate financial resources simply cannot cover their home-heating expenses. The program is funded by the generous contributions of Kansas Gas Service customers and the ONE Gas Foundation.
“We know there are people who have never had to seek assistance before, but now are experiencing hardships due to the pandemic and loss of income,” said Abbey Frye, Kansas Gas Service Director of Customer Service. “For qualified applicants, Share The Warmth may be able to bring some welcomed relief.”
Share The Warmth is available to residents in the communities served by Kansas Gas Service, and applicants do not have to be customers.
If you need help with your winter heating bill, visit KansasGasService.com or contact The Salvation Army at 1-816-756-5392, ext. 2.
If you want to contribute, giving is easy: Kansas Gas Service customers may contribute online at KansasGasService.com by clicking the Share The Warmth button next to the Make Payment button, or by adding an extra amount to your natural gas bill payment and checking the Share The Warmth box on your payment slip.
