Special Report 2013, Part 1: HeatShare

Remember last year’s winter? No snow, unseasonably warm … pretty tame. Not this time around. Jack Frost conspicuously returned with sub-zero temps and piles of snow. That’s spelled trouble for families unable to keep up with their energy bill.

Thankfully, there’s Salvation Army HeatShare. HeatShare helps families keep their heat on by providing utility assistance for things like natural gas, electricity and emergency furnace repairs. (Donate online)
