COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The holidays are over, but the season of giving is still ongoing.

As the frigid temperatures stick around this winter season, the Valley community can help those in need of paying their utility bills.

Both the Salvation Army and Georgia Power partnered together to help cover those behind on their power bills through Project Share.

Customers can donate $1 to $10 on their next bill and that could help someone with extenuating circumstances, like caring for a sick relative or losing a job.

"People come in with various reasons why they might need help with their utility bill. Things they have going on like a medical bill or different things that have occurred in their life. To be able to meet that need is just a great feeling for us." Said Josh Henson, Salvation Army of Columbus Captain.

All a customer needs to do is select a dollar amount on their next bill, and project share will take care of the rest.

January is a great time to consider the program and enroll for the New Year.
