Project WARM - Weather Assistance Resources for Morganton - is a partnership between the City of Morganton and Burke United Christian Ministries to provide financial assistance for local residents to help pay utility bills. The City started the project in 1987.
City utility customers who want to help can add a minimum $1.00 donation to their utility bill, which the City Finance Dept. sends to Burke United Christian Ministries once a month.
Project Warm is completely voluntary and customers can choose to opt out of making the donation any month.
To sign up, fill out the form below and mail it in with your utility payment or bring it to the Business Office Counter in City Hall. For more information, call 438-5245.
Once a customer signs up, they will see the donation on their monthly utility bill "PROJECT WARM CONTRIBUTION."
