Ameren IP presented United Way of Danville Area a corporate check for $13,100 for the annual campaign. Coupled with employees’ gifts, the total contribution from Ameren is $17,368, a 4.5 percent increase over last year’s donation.
We truly appreciate their continued generous support to help us live our mission of mobilizing the caring power of our community to improve people’s lives in areas of their health, education and financial stability.
With the frigid temperatures the area has experienced for so long a period, Ameren IP recognizes that now is the time high heating bills will be reaching homes and this could pose a hardship on families.
Ameren is advising customers who are struggling to pay their bills to let them know by calling Ameren at (800) 755-5000 to talk to customer service. Customers also can access http://www.AmerenIllinois.com and http://www.ActOnEnergy.com to find ways to help, including the option of budget billing, to name one.
