Pennies change lives
The Pennies from Heaven program was established to make a difference in our local community one penny at a time. By rounding up members’ bills and donating the extra pennies for Angel Fund allocations, SECO is able to provide financial assistance for worthy causes in our service area.
SECO Energy employees also contribute to Pennies from Heaven through individual donations and corporate fundraisers. Members enrolled in Pennies from Heaven have their monthly electric bill automatically rounded up to the nearest dollar. As an example, if the bill is $97.72, the member will pay $98.00. The extra 28 pennies go directly to Pennies from Heaven.
Every cent collected is distributed here in our local communities to our members. Currently due to the COVID-19 shutdown, Pennies are dedicated largely to bill payment assistance and food banks. Requests for assistance are administered through several area agencies by calling 211 or by reaching out directly to a social service agency that offers utility assistance. SECO recently developed an interactive map specifically to help members find funding.
Any small administrative costs are absorbed by SECO Energy. Just a few cents every month can change lives. Enroll today using the online form below to have your pennies donated each month. If you’d like to provide a donation by check instead, please mail it to us at:
