Making a difference for Mary

Each year hundreds of people are kept safe from the summer heat and winter cold by EnergyCare. Mary’s story is just one of many, but it helps to illustrate the real impact of what EnergyCare does.

Mary is 67 and suffers from thyroid problems and osteoarthritis – conditions that make her very vulnerable to the cold.

When her furnace broke down Mary couldn’t afford to have it fixed.

“If I’d stayed here I would’ve froze to death; I’m human just like everyone else.”

EnergyCare’s services team brought her an electric heater and blankets while we arranged for her furnace to be repaired. It made a huge difference for Mary who said,

“God is good – I sure appreciate you all!”
