Customer Care – Funding Utility Assistance Programs – Clark Public Utilities – Spotlight – 2018

Since 1985, Clark Public Utilities in Vancouver, Wash., has been helping families in financial hardship pay their utility bills during the winter through Operation Warm Heart. In 2015, Clark launched its annual Race for Warmth to help fund the program while providing a fun community event. In January, more than 1,300 runners and walkers showed up for the big day, raising more than $51,000, approximately 10% of the amount Operation Warm Heart needs for the year.
