SCANA Energy Warms Hearts and Homes of Military Families this Winter


Natural gas provider partners with United Military Care to help families in need

November 11, 2014 -- Did you know that Georgia has 72,000 active duty service members and an estimated 772,832 veterans? Too many of those veterans and military families struggle to pay their utility bills and keep their homes warm through the winter. United Military Care, Inc. (UMC), a not-for-profit committed to providing for and strengthening military families, has helped hundreds of military households with their heating bills over the past two years. And this year will be a cold one, with predictions indicating low temperatures and above-normal snowfall throughout much of the nation.

By the numbers*

  • 49 percent of all military families claim financial issues as a top stressor during service
  • 8,756 Georgia military families and veterans served by UMC to-date
  • 138,833 estimated homeless veterans in Georgia
  • 13 calls per month to UMC (on average) requesting utility assistance

Don’t leave our heroes out in the cold this winter.

This winter, natural gas provider SCANA Energy is teaming up with UMC to help Georgia’s military service members, veterans and their families stay warm. SCANA Energy is starting this special fund with a $5,000 donation, and will match every dollar raised above $5,000, up to $10,000 through February 2015.

Help us warm the homes and hearts of our veterans and military families in need this winter. Click here to give to our utility assistance fund today.

SCANA Energy also supports military families and veterans by providing Georgia’s only natural gas military discount. For more information, visit
