10th Annual Walk for Warmth
Warm a Heart, Heat a Home
The 10th Annual Walk for Warmth sponsored by Roy E. Berrier & Son, and Snedeker Energy in partnership with the United Way of Mifflin-Juniata and Mifflin-Juniata Human Services, will be held on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 at Kish Park.
The event will be held when temperatures are low so walkers can imagine what families who are struggling experience. All proceeds from the Walk for Warmth benefit the Mifflin-Juniata Energy Bank in efforts of providing heat assistance to families who fail to qualify for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance program (LIHEAP) funding due to income ineligibility or those 60 or older.
Due to tremendous community
response, proceeds from Walk for Warmth will also enable the Energy
Bank to be responsive to meeting the needs of our most vulnerable residents. Often, individuals
are forced to make decisions about paying rent on time or paying heating
costs. Donations will allow Energy Bank recipients to access
funds to assist with either of these issues.
