Laclede Gas Company, in partnership with the Mathews-Dickey Boys' & Girls' Club, will conduct a free seminar on Thursday, Feb. 17 to discuss low-income energy assistance, free home weatherization, and energy conservation and safety. The seminar will start at 6 p.m. at Beaumont High School, 3836 Natural Bridge Avenue. While the program is intended for residents who live near the school, any customer is welcome to attend.
This program is part of the Laclede Gas/Mathews-Dickey community outreach program called "Reach Out St. Louis!," aimed at providing services that will prevent students from dropping out of school. A team of Laclede Gas personnel will be on hand with laptops enabling them to quickly access customer accounts, help customers prevent service disconnection, restore service when possible, and complete qualifying applications for low-income energy assistance.
Also in attendance will be representatives from the Human Development Corporation (HDC) and the Urban League of St. Louis. HDC will provide applications for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and the Urban League will provide details on how to qualify and apply for free home weatherization services while those funds are still available.
Laclede encourages customers to “Check a Red Box” to contribute to Dollar-Help, a heating-assistance fund designed to help those less fortunate pay their utility bills. Laclede also works closely with the Missouri congressional delegation in seeking continued federal funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). LIHEAP is a federally funded block grant that provides money to help low-income households make home heating more affordable and avoid shutoff of utility services during the winter.
A subsidiary of The Laclede Group (NYSE: LG), Laclede Gas Company has provided safe and reliable service to the residents of the St. Louis metropolitan area for more than 150 years. It is the largest gas distribution company in Missouri, serving nearly 630,000 natural gas customers in St. Louis and surrounding counties in Eastern Missouri.
