Helping Neighbors®

Layoffs, medical emergencies, unexpected repairs — all things that could happen to anyone and all things that can leave families struggling to make ends meet. Dakota Electric created the Helping Neighbors® trust to help struggling families and individuals catch up on utility bills during unexpected hardships.
