Cold temperatures impact electric usage making it difficult for many in our community to pay their winter heating bills. Benton PUD provides an opportunity for customers to help others on their electric bill by donating to the Round Up for Helping Hands program. All donations (100%) are distributed by Community Action Connections to Benton PUD customers who need help on their bill and meet the guidelines. Donations to Round Up are tax deductible.
“Our customers are very generous. This is demonstrated during our annual holiday promotion and throughout the entire year,” said Christie McAloon, Customer Service Manager. “In 2018, 334 families in our community received much-needed assistance with their electric bills.”
Benton PUD invites customers to “Round Up” for Helping Hands this holiday season. You can round up your bill to the nearest dollar each month, add a specific dollar amount to your monthly bill or add a one-time additional amount to your next bill. To enroll, contact Customer Service or visit www.bentonpud.org, login to in SmartHub®, navigate to Billing & Payments and select Round Up for Helping Hands.
One-time donations can be made by mail, phone or in person at Benton PUD offices in Kennewick or Prosser. During our holiday promotion, we’ll add to a display in our lobby for each donation.
