Helping Hands was created to assist families with unexpected emergencies. The program helps members in need who have exhausted all other resources to pay their energy bill. Helping Hands funds come from member donations. The funds stay in our service area and are disbursed only to qualified recipients by the Community Action Partnership. Clearwater Power does not retain any of the funds and contributions are tax-deductible.
Many people just round up their payment to the nearest-dollar and indicate they'd like that portion to go to Helping Hands, that's all you need to do. You can do this on your paper bills or when paying online.
Please call (208) 743-1501 for more information.
