Pacific Power: Project HELP Pacific Power: Project HELP

YAKIMA, WA. - Pacific Power is getting ready for this year's Project HELP and will match every $1 you donate with $2 more. 

Contribution envelopes coming with November mailing or help neighbors by arranging monthly donations online.

Project HELP is administered by The Salvation Army in Walla Walla and Yakima and the Northwest Community Action Agency in Toppenish.

In 2014, Pacific Power's donations helped 445 households in need in Washington. The 2-for-1 match this year will continue until a cap of $34,000 of Pacific Power matching funds is reached.

"The economy is getting better in many places, but we know too many of our neighbors are still in need of the most basic help," said Toby Freeman, regional business manager of Pacific Power. "Serving our customers is the reason we're in business. Going a step further in partnership with our customers to help neighbors that need a hand, is the right thing for us to do."

Pacific Power customers who receive their bills by mail will find a Project HELP contribution envelope in their November bills. Those interested in assisting local households in need can donate by forwarding their tax-deductible contribution in this envelope. Customers who pay their bills electronically can send a check or enroll in the fixed donation program. This program allows customers to donate any dollar amount, starting at $1 per month, which is then incorporated into their monthly bill.


All donations are tax-deductible and are forwarded to the agencies administering Project HELP, and they verify eligibility and allocate funds to those in need. All funds donated are used to assist families in need from the same county in which the donor resides.

Customers who need bill assistance themselves can talk with Pacific Power representatives who can help with payment plans that work for their individual needs or direct them to agencies that may be able to help. Pacific Power's customer service number is 1-888-221-7070.
