Each year, thousands of low-income Georgians struggle to pay their heating bills. Too many people in our community have to choose between staying warm and paying for other necessities. The good news is the City of Social Circle is partnering with the Heating Energy Assistance Team (HEAT), Inc., a nonprofit organization that is Georgia’s oldest statewide fuel fund.
Since 1983, HEAT has provided more than $23 million for energy assistance to nearly 100,000 households. Funds are distributed by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services through community action agencies serving each county. In Walton and surrounding counties, $90,400 was distributed to 264 households for energy assistance last winter. However, the need continues to be much greater than the funds available.
Your tax-deductible gift to HEAT will help an elderly couple living on a fixed income, or a single parent caring for small children or a family whose primary bread winner lost a job. With the help of generous citizens contributing to HEAT, low-income Georgians are able to receive the energy assistance they need.
