Warmest Wishes for a Happy Holiday!

It’s hard to believe, but the holiday season is upon us once again! It’s a time of year where we relax with family and friends, bake cookies, and watch a holiday TV special while curled up on the couch. Maybe you have a fire going in the fireplace or maybe you’re snuggled under your favorite wool blanket.
The point is, we can relax and enjoy A Charlie Brown Christmas because we’re warm. But far too many people aren’t, and they can’t afford to turn the heat up. Every year, the need for LIHEAP assistance increases, but funding remains Grinch-like. Heat Smart helps by partnering with community organizations to reach low-income families.
Our Heat Smart Kits give low-income families the tools they need to stay warm while encouraging lower thermostat settings. The kit includes: warmth (a high quality, wool-blend blanket), conservation (weather-stripping), and education (energy saving tips). It’s a simple idea with a HUGE impact: families stay warm and save money on heating bills.
Our program benefits our partners too. Heat Smart helps them stretch their heat assistance dollars, increase cost-efficiency, and reach their goals and mandates.
We have already made a difference to over 500,000 households in 39 states across the country partnering with non-profits, community action programs, government agencies and utilities. We have the logistics to turn orders around quickly and the flexibility to tailor a program to specific needs. We work with our partners every step of the way to make them successful. Call or email us to see how we can help you help families in your area.
Until next year, all of us here at Heat Smart send you warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and a healthy new year!
