This Holiday Season, Give "A Gift of Warmth"!

As the weather becomes increasingly cold, many families across Frederick County without a reliable source of heat dread the chill of winter.

This is why we team up with our generous friends at BGE HOME to give one family in need A Gift of Warmth—a new high-efficiency heating and cooling system (HVAC) for the value of $9,500. The systems will be provided by Carrier and Trane and BGE HOME will provide the installations.

If you know a family member, friend, neighbor, or someone in the community who is in need of A Gift of Warmth this holiday season, please tell us their story.

How do I nominate someone?

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Visit BGE Home's Website by Friday, December 9.
  2. Tell us why your nominee should be selected by filling out a short questionnaire.
  3. Sit tight and wait for the winner to be announced Friday, December 16. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of United Way volunteers.
