What Is Operation WARM?
Operation WARM is a limited area energy program offered through Community Action of North Alabama which provides assistance on a one-time basis to persons who are elderly, handicapped, or in health crisis situations. Funding is provided by residents of Morgan and Lawrence counties through donations of $1.00 or more above their monthly electric bills. Whether it’s a young family struggling with unemployment or a senior adult living on a meager income, families all over our area can have hope – and heat – through Operation WARM.
Who Have They Helped?
Last year, our generous members donated over $13,000 to Operation WARM – that’s almost 40% of the program’s annual budget. Your donations helped keep the electricity on for 241 families this year, affecting 640 people.
