Warming Hands and Hearts



United Way of the Eastern Panhandle (UWEP) is once again teaming up with Roach Energy, ROCS Convenience Stores and the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) to help provide much needed heating assistance through the Warming Hands and Hearts (WH&H) Initiative.

The Warming Hands and Hearts fundraising campaign begins on February 1 and will run through April 30.

During the 3-month period, ROCS Convenience Stores will offer a “One-Cent Wednesday” promotion where each ROCS location in West Virginia will donate one cent per gallon of gasoline sold. Roach Energy will also contribute one cent per gallon of oil or propane that their customers purchase when requesting a delivery from their Warming Hands and Hearts truck.

Warming Hands and Hearts goes beyond financial assistance by providing a case manager who contacts the utility company on behalf of the client. Negotiated payment arrangements and financial management information are also provided.

For heating assistance applications, contact DHHR at 304-267-0100.
