Chester County is a great place to live and work, yet many in our community struggle to get by. Limited personal and financial resources are having a direct impact on the conditions of homes, resulting in severe physical and financial hardships.
Share the Warmth, the United Way of Chester County’s holiday giving initiative formed in partnership with the Daily Local News, has provided hundreds of local families with home repairs and winterization projects.
Homes are plagued with problems like poor insulation, broken or inefficient heating systems, poorly sealed windows, inoperable hot water heaters, non-functional water pipes, leaky roofs, and more. Many homeowners live paycheck to paycheck and are forced to spend a disproportionate amount of their income on energy bills and other emergency housing issues. These challenges are compounded during the winter months with families and individuals striving to stay safe and warm.
Share the Warmth provides people in Chester County long-term fixes through major home repairs and short-term solutions for those facing homelessness or inadequate shelter. This work often means that families can stay in their own homes – warm, safe, and dry – and those affected by the elements of winter are protected.
Contributions in any amount are welcome and greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to United Way of Chester County and send to 495 Thomas Jones Way, Suite 302, Exton, PA 19341, Attn: SHARE THE WARMTH.
