ENWIN AND ESSEX POWERLINES HELP CUSTOMERS DONATE TO LOCAL FOOD BANKS

Oldcastle, ON: More than 881 local electricity customers have earned donations for local food banks, by signing up for paperless billing. Through their joint paperless billing campaign, Let’s CAN Hunger Together, ENWIN Utilities Ltd. (ENWIN) and Essex Powerlines Corporation (EPL) offered customers a chance to save paper and donate $10 each to local food banks, without spending a dime.

During the Let’s CAN Hunger Together campaign, the local distribution companies banded together to recognize paperless billing signups by donating $10 to local food banks for each customer signup. The campaign ran from October 25th to December 7th and prompted customers to help make a difference in their community by taking advantage of e-billing services. The significant amount of customer participation raised $8810 for local food banks and spoke volumes about the generosity of our community during times of need.

On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, EPL and ENWIN will present donations to the following food banks:

•    The Downtown Mission of Windsor
•    St. Andrew’s LaSalle Food Bank
•    Amherstburg Food & Fellowship Mission
•    Tecumseh Goodfellows
•    Leamington Salvation Army

The ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. at the EPL Office, 2730 Highway 3, Oldcastle ON. Media are invited to attend. Breakout interviews and photo opportunities will be available.

“We are proud to serve such great communities and would like to thank our customers for participating in this event.

Campaigns like this prove how local utilities can work together to make an impact on the communities we serve.” Joe Barile, General Manager, Essex Powerlines
