Delmarva Power provided the Salvation Army of Delaware a check for more than $12,000 as part of its commitment to match customer donations for the company’s Good Neighbor Energy Fund (GNEF). From March to October of 2018, Delmarva Power customers donated more than $37,000 to the Salvation Army as part of the GNEF program. Delmarva Power’s contribution comes from its promise to match $1 for every $3 received, up to $70,000 annually. Since partnering with local non-profits, Delmarva Power has donated more than $380,000 toward the effort.
Through GNEF, customers can donate to local organizations that provide payment assistance to low-income customers struggling to pay their winter energy bills. Donations are made to The Salvation Army and other non-profits in the service area and disbursed to qualified recipients, with much of the funds distributed to those in need during the winter.
