The Avista CARES Program has once again partnered with The Salvation Army of Spokane to help households in assistance with their utility bills, by making a $27,000 donation toward residences that receive a utility shut-off notice.
In 2014 more than 200 residences were able to keep their power through this partnership. Additionally, Avista made a $5,000 contribution toward the Salvation Army Warming Center, where homeless families and individuals go to stay warm at night. The warming center serves more than 100 people a night.
“We can’t thank Avista enough for what they do for us and for the community," said Community Services Program Manager, Cassandra Cram. "To be able to offer a program that allows struggling households to keep their power on is very special because it allows them a chance to get back on their feet, it’s a real blessing!”
Avista will present a check to the Salvation Army Wednesday, December 3 at 2:00 p.m.
