Share the Heat originated as a fundraising opportunity for Southwest Nebraska residents who were unable to meet their heating expenses. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans assisted with the organization of this cause. Area board members and Lutheran organizations continue to hold this annual event as Thrivent no longer has an area committee but there continues to be a need!
Share the Heat coordinates with Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska. Area residents who meet the financial need are assisted with their heating expense one time over the winter months. The funds are sent directly to their provider. Share the Heat helped 22 households in the Southwest Nebraska area in 2015.
