Hometown Helping Hand
Hometown Helping Hand is a program implemented by the Board of Light & Power to raise additional funding for assisting families in need in the Grand Haven area with paying past due electric bills.
The Board of Light & Power donates 80% of proceeds raised from its disconnect notice program to help supplement the Hometown Helping Hand program. The rest of the funding is collected through one-time or monthly donations from the Board of Light & Power customers or local support groups. 100% of funds collected go to the Hometown Helping Hand program and remain right here in our community. All funds collected are held by the Board of Light & Power and distributed through the Salvation Army’s assistance program to qualifying BLP customers. In FY2020, Hometown Helping Hand distributed $16,686.27 to BLP customers in need of assistance.
