The "Helping Hands" program from the Benton PUD is asking for $1 donations to help people having trouble paying the electrical bill. Once you donate, a slip of paper will be added to a paper chain that will be shown in their lobby. Donate by requesting the $1 be added to your electric bill. Make a one-time donation or request an additional amount of $1 or more donation be added to your bill each month. You can do this in person at the Kennewick or Prosser offices of the PUD, or by calling the office, or making a note on the bill you mail in. The phone number is 509-582-1228.
