Embrace Warm Hearts

Dear Friends of Warm Hearts of Douglas County:

Many residents of Lawrence and Douglas County will need our help with energy assistance this winter. For them, the issue goes beyond comfort. It’s a matter of safety and health.

Warm Hearts of Douglas County with your help can make a difference for these families with heating needs. They are families with small children, elderly, veterans, hard-working people who have suddenly been left without an income because of illness or loss of jobs. Applicants are screened and have a household income below 185% of federal poverty guidelines.

Every penny you give goes directly to qualifying applicants. Our promotional needs are met through other grants and our volunteer board donates time and effort to make Warm Hearts work for you and those in need.

Thanks to people like you, last year Warm Hearts helped more than 1,240 local residents—many of them families with small children—in more than 560 homes.

Donating is easy. You can make your tax deductible gift by PayPal at our secure website, warmheartsofdouglascounty.com Or you can mail your check using the enclosed envelope made out to Black Hills. In either case, Black Hills will match your gift, doubling the help we are able to give to those in need.

Warm Regards,
The Warm Hearts Board of Directors


Please Note:

Matching funds double the power of your donation to Warm Hearts of Douglas County.

Through the Black Hills Cares program, natural gas service provider Black Hills Energy matches every donation to Warm Hearts. Black Hills Cares dollars are applied to heating bills for natural gas, wood or propane.
