Consider Donating to the Rainy Day Fund

We live in a generous community. Our county benefits from the work of many community groups organized to help their fellow citizens. And these community groups benefit from a large number of citizens with the time and means to spend helping others. Especially this time of year.

But not everyone in Jefferson County has an abundance of time, nor a lot of extra money to spare. If you fall into this category, but want to help contribute to those less fortunate, consider rounding up on your PUD bill each month. It’s easy to do, just check the box on the back of your bill. Using Smart Hub, you can also choose to donate an additional $5 or $10 per month. If you have the means to share more, we also accept one-time donations of any amount.

All of the money collected goes to the PUD’s Rainy Day fund. The Rainy Day fund is used by OlyCAP and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to help Jefferson County residents on the verge of losing power or water service. For citizens struggling to find enough money to eat, winter power bills to heat often poorly insulated homes can be crushing, even with a PUD low-income discount. OlyCAP and St. Vincent de Paul use customer donated Rainy Day funds to make sure our most at-risk neighbors have heat, light, and clean drinking water.
