Share your pennies to share the warmth

Staff Writer

DALLAS - Atmos Energy encourages customers to make a difference this holiday season by rounding up their natural gas bill, which amounts to only pennies a month.
“Last year, we assisted approximately 10,000 customers with their natural gas bills,” said Dan Alderson, Atmos Energy director of energy assistance. “There is even a greater need for energy assistance this year. If all of our three million customers rounded up their bill then we could assist 90,000 customers in need.”
Atmos Energy’s Sharing the Warmth program provides funds to local assistance agencies to help the elderly, disabled, veterans and families in need pay their natural gas bills.
