Neighbor Helping Neighbor
The “Neighbor Helping Neighbor” program is a community effort among churches, civic groups and SMEC to help families pay for electrical service. It is a simple program where interested members can specify a monthly amount to pledge and then have that amount added to the electric bill. All donations will be used to pay for electricity in SMEC’s service area. Funds are distributed through the local Community Action Neighborhood Centers.
