A win-win option for Burlington residents is being presented by Burlington Hydro and the Burlington Food Bank.

A new program will see the energy company encourage its customers to sign up for paperless e-billing. With every new customer registration, a $5 donation will be made by to the Burlington Food Bank.

The campaign is intended to help alleviate paper clutter and do it in a manner that brings benefit to the community.

“We’re thrilled to run a campaign that will encourage more customers to sign up for our paperless ebilling service while supporting the tremendous work and contributions of the Burlington Food Bank,” said Gerry Smallegange, president and CEO, Burlington Hydro Inc.

“Especially through these challenging economic times, the Burlington Food Bank is lending a helping hand to address the increased needs of local families who are struggling to keep food on the table.”

The Burlington Food Bank provides fresh and non-perishable food, as well as toiletries and cleaning supplies, to the community and supports more than 20 emergency food programs across the city.

“The Burlington Food Bank is so thankful to organizations like Burlington Hydro that support our much-needed efforts in assisting those who struggle with food security,” said Robin Bailey, the food bank’s executive director.

“We have experienced an increase in food bank usage throughout the last few months and are truly thankful for the support we receive through initiatives like the E-billing campaign. It’s a simple way to support those in need in our community and for the environment.”

The campaign is expected to run until February of 2023. Those who wish to switch can do so through their online Burlington Hydro account.
