One dollar a month could help your neighbor

We know that part of being a good neighbor is to lend a hand when needed, and we know our customer-members share this charitable spirit, especially during the holidays.

For people who have fallen on hard times, receiving enough money to pay past due electric bills can make a big difference in their lives.

By contributing to Members Helping Members, you can join your neighbors to help keep the lights on.

How do I help?

It’s easy! Simply sign up to add $1, $5, or $10 to your SMECO electric bill every month.

Each month donations are sent to the Southern Maryland Tri-County Community Action Committee, which will administer the funds to those customer-members who seek aid and meet the qualifications.
