NW Natural program donates $163,000 to the organization as customers, shareholders and employees lend a hand.

DREAMSTIME PHOTO - Yamhill Community Action Partnership is one of the local organizations that will benefit from the $163,000 that NW Natural employees, customers and shareholders contributed to through the company's Gas Assistance Program in the past year.

Yamhill Community Action Partnership is one of the local organizations that will benefit from the $163,000 NW Natural employees, customers and shareholders contributed to through the company's Gas Assistance Program in the past year.

The program is designed to help low-income families and seniors pay their winter heating bills.

"The Gas Assistance Program is a critical resource for those in our community who need help with winter heating costs," Mary Moerlins, director of environmental policy and corporate responsibility at NW Natural, said. "We're so grateful to those who donated last year to help their neighbors in need and look forward to help make a difference during this year's giving season, which is now underway."

The Portland-based company pays for all administrative costs so all funds donated will be donated to recipients in a program that began nearly 40 years ago. More than $6.5 million has been distributed to community action groups throughout the state since 1982.

This year's giving season continues through August and NW Natural shareholders will match the first $60,000 in contributions, including matching NW Natural employee and retirees gifts to the program during the annual campaign.

Tax-deductible donations may be made via United Way at connect.unitedway-pdx.org/GAP or by mail at Gas Assistance Program, P.O. Box 35143 #4406, Seattle, WA 98124.
