By Bill Redlin

Families who need helping paying heating bills this season may be getting funds from the company that supplies electricity in the Old Dominion.

Dominion is donating $1 million to a program that helps those who need assistance in paying their heating bills. The donation to Energy Share follows another $1 million contribution the company made in October.

Energy Share helps people who are unemployed or who have other financial problems to heat their homes after other forms of assistance have been exhausted. Payments on behalf of the recipients go directly to the energy vendors. Dominion chairman and CEO Thomas Farrell II says the company recognizes its customers are being affected by economic hardships that haven't been seen in several generations.
