Benton PUD is encouraging customer donations to the Helping Hands Program.
For $1, customers can add a link to a paper chain in the PUD office lobby.
The program helps low-income customers pay their electric bill.
Customers can give a one-time donation or ask that a donation be added to their monthly bill.
The PUD has two locations: 2721 W. Tenth Ave., Kennewick and 250 N. Gap Road, Prosser.
Donations also can be made over the phone by calling 582-1228.
