*Public Notice of Heat Up St. Louis Disclaimer for Clients/Patients
Heat Up St. Louis, is an all-volunteer, not-profit entity which provides energy assistance through referral social service agencies and has certain requirements for low-income households for utility assistance and it is on a first-come basis. If funds are temporarily unavailable at the referral agencies, request to be placed on a waiting list, but always contact your utility vendor and express your inability to pay. This summer, while supplies last, we’re only distributing new or slightly used air-conditioners to some referral agencies solely for area seniors and the severely disabled. We don’t provide units if you already have one working anywhere in the household. We are always sorry to hear when a member of our community is unhappy with their experience with any of the referral agencies. But we’re not responsible if an agency doesn't return your call or qualify you for assistance. Our hotline at 314-241-7668 is meant to inform and to follow-up with one of the agencies, nearest you. During unreasonable high temperature cycles you may experience a busy 24/7 automated hotline, we urge you to attempt to call us back or the referral agencies, during non-peak times. All donations made on-line or through our UMB lock-box, etc. will receive a written receipt within 45 days after your gift. If you have a complaint, we urge you to send it to email@example.com attention: Office of the General Counsel/Board Secretary. Please provide a real name to communicate back to, if it is necessary.

But Heat Up St. Louis and its sister program, Cool Down St. Louis, provide year-around assistance to help people who are at risk when the weather gets bitterly cold or brutally hot.
Since 2001, the volunteers, non-profit agencies, local governments and corporate supporters that comprise Heat Up and Cool Down have assisted 100,000 people with $3 million in utility subsidies to consumers in 17 Missouri and Illinois counties in the St. Louis region. MORE
