    Need help paying your bills?

    Your first step is to dial 211 on your phone and follow the prompts. Or, you may visit the 2-1-1 website at www.211.org and enter your Zip Code. Follow the on-screen prompts.  This puts you in touch with the North Florida chapter of the United Way, where you may be able to receive help in all areas of need (not just electric bill payment assistance).

    SECO Energy Pennies from Heaven Program

    SECO Energy’s “Pennies from Heaven Program” was established to make a difference locally one penny at a time.  

    NOTE:  The Villages Democratic Club donated $3,000.00 to Pennies from Heaven in June. A thank you letter received from SECO’s CEO can be seen in the link below.

    SECO Letter-062220.pdf

    SECO members who enroll in Pennies from Heaven agree to have their bill rounded up to the nearest dollar.  According to SECO, THIS MEANS THAT, AT MOST, YOUR MONTHLY ELECTRIC BILL WOULD INCREASE BY $0.99. 

    The extra pennies are donated to support allocations by social service agencies for bill payment assistance. These pennies also allow SECO to provide support to worthy causes in their service area.

    To enroll in Pennies from Heaven, you may click the following link in your web browser to go to their website and fill out a form:


    You will need your SECO account number to complete the form.

    More than 400 Villages Democratic Club members responded last week to a brief survey sent by the Board of Directors, asking how they might prefer to meet next.  As you can see in the graphics below, members overwhelmingly chose a virtual meeting, expressing a desire for collective actions that allow people to stay safest from the corona virus.

    The Board is evaluating your responses and will shortly discuss options and present them to you.

    Thanks for participating and for your determination to find ways to help our candidates.
