CNP partners with Salvation Army

Salvation Army Since The Salvation Army HeatShare program was formed 27 years ago, thousands of Minnesotans struggling to pay their heating bills have been aided by CNP customers’ generous donations to the program.

“During these challenging financial times, contributing is more important than ever,” said Jeff Daugherty, director of Regulatory Service and HeatShare board member. “Many of these families will not receive federal energy assistance and will turn to HeatShare to make it through the winter.” CNP founded HeatShare in 1982 and continues to support the program by helping pay administrative costs and more.

CNP employees have also partnered with The Salvation Army in other ways this winter. Joe Vortherms, director of Home Service Plus and pictured, rang bells with other Minnesota employees in December. The CNP team raised nearly $300 in just five hours at a busy Minneapolis skyway site featured by local news media.
