Delmarva Power aiding three agencies by splitting $460K among them to help families struggling

DELMARVA- Delmarva Power recently gave money to three agencies on the shore to help them provide support to customers impacted by the pandemic.

More than $460,000 dollars was split among The Salvation Army Lower Eastern Shore, Cecil County Heating Assistance Program, and Harford County Community Action Agency.

The funding will be given to qualified customers who are in energy assistance programs that are put on by these agencies.

We’re told this help is needed now more than ever as COVID-19 is changing people’s lives.

“Right now, it’s absolutely crucial, people are working from home, children are learning from home, and electric is just a fundamental basic need so it’s very important that we continue our efforts,” Cynthia Ventresca, Senior Community Relations Specialist of Delmarva Power, said.

The Salvation Army will be getting $373,000 dollars to cover areas like Salisbury and Cambridge.

Delmarva Power said they hope to continue helping families who are struggling in the future.
