While some have returned to their jobs during this pandemic many either haven’t or are only working part-time which makes it hard to keep your essential payments current. Richard Remp-Morris, CEO of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul says, “Rent, utilities, food are essential items, and many of our neighbors are struggling many times they have to choose between feeding their families, purchasing needed medicines, or other essentials.“
Over the past 3 years St. Vincent de Paul has supplied $45,000 in assistance for their neighbor’s gas utility bills. With winter approaching Atmos Energy knows the need is great so through its Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities program, the company is donating $10,000 to St. Vincent de Paul Central District for energy assistance, natural gas appliance repair or line repair, and small weatherization repairs. Atmos Energy also partners with Audubon Area Community Action Agency for the weatherization program, “Atmos Cares.”
Kay Coomes, Manager Public Affairs for Atmos Energy says, “The company appreciates all the efforts of St. Vincent DePaul helping our customers in the past with energy assistance and we are proud we can give back to them.” “Without this vital assistance, many of our Kentucky families would be faced with the impossible choice of choosing between heating their homes and paying for other necessities such as food and medications,” said Kevin Dobbs, Atmos Energy Kentucky/Mid-States Division president. “At Atmos Energy, we are committed to helping our most vulnerable neighbors.”
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is thankful that companies like Atmos Energy are committed to helping our neighbors in need. If your company or you yourself would like to make a donation you can do so online at svdpwesternky.org/give or by mail to St. Vincent de Paul, P.O Box 1203, Owensboro KY 42302.
St. Vincent de Paul's Central District Council of Owensboro has received a $100,000 grant from the Green River Area COVID-19 Response Fund, established by the United Way of the Ohio Valley and the Green River Area Community Foundation. The funds are to be used to assist Daviess County residents affected by Covid 19 with Rent and Utilities. Faye May, Central District President distributed the funds among the eight conferences which are located in Daviess County.
