With the holiday giving season officially upon us, Nashville Electric Service (NES) is kicking off its annual Project Help campaign. For NES customers looking for a way to give back and warm homes and make the holidays brighter for those in need there are three easy ways to make a big difference.
Customers can add $1 or more to their monthly bill by signing up at nespower.com, click on “Energy Assistance” and submit the online form.
Customers can also support Project Help by using their Kroger Plus Card when shopping for groceries if the register online at kroger.com/ communityrewards and select NeedLink Nashville as the charity of choice. All donations go directly to NeedLink Nashville to help individuals who qualify for aid.
Finally, customers of NES can look for the insert in their December bill and return it with a payment to start helping right away.
One-hundred percent of donations provide temporary energy assistance to the elderly, disabled and low-income customers in the community. Last year, thanks to the generosity of NES customers, Project Help reached over 2,200 adults and children keeping them warm all winter long.
“We are grateful to our customers and employees who have been longtime supporters of Project Help and many other worthwhile causes that assist families who are struggling financially,” said NES President & CEO Decosta Jenkins.
Individuals may also consider helping a specific customer with their NES bill by purchasing an energy gift certificate in the NES Customer Lobby or by calling NES Customer Relations at 615-736-6900. These certificates are available in $5 increments with a $25 minimum purchase to help pay NES electric bills.
