Project SHARE and help with energy assistance

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - With cold winter temperatures and people hurting from the pandemic, some people might be looking for help paying their heating bills.

The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham administers the only registered Project SHARE, or Service to Help Alabamians with Relief on Energy, in Alabama in partnership with Alabama Power and the rural electric cooperatives.

Project SHARE provides emergency energy assistance to seniors and disabled Alabamians in peak winter and summer months.

Project SHARE is primarily funded through donations collected through Alabama Power customers.
