TXU Donates $75,000 to Help With Local Power Bills

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - TXU Energy has donated $75,000 to help Abilene community members with their power bills.

The money, which was raised by local TXU customers who pledged to pay a little more on their bills each month, was donated to United Way of Abilene during a ceremony Thursday morning. 

United Way of Abilene hopes to help community members who used to receive utility assistance through the statewide LITE-UP Texas program that ceased all funding in August of 2016.

 Anyone who wants to apply for assistance is asked to contact 2-1-1 Texas. Their office is located at 240 Cypress Street, and they can be reached by calling (325)673.8211.

The amount of assistance provided will be based on household income. United Way of Aiblene plans to help around 290 families with this money in 2017.

TXU also donated 200 blankets to Abilene's Basic Needs Network which consists of organizations like United Way of Abilene, the Salvation Army, Protect Champs, and more.
