GREENSBORO, N.C. — It might not feel like winter yet, but it is! And soon enough we’ll feel bitter cold temperatures too.

Colder weather means you’ll likely be cranking up the heat. However, some folks don’t have that option and that’s where you come in to help.

Every winter, the Salvation Army has to turn away far too many requests for help with the heating expenses of those less fortunate.

That’s why Berico Heating and Cooling in Greensboro, Alamance Oil in Burlington and Carolina Fuels in Eden/Reidsville has teamed up with the Salvation Army, Bank Branching and Trust and WFMY News 2 to make sure families who can’t afford to heat their homes get the help they need.
