Interlakes Area United Way's Heat the Streets 5K, held April 27, raised $769 for heating assistance programs administered by Inter-Lakes Community Action Partnership. IAUW representatives recently presented the money to ICAP Community Service Worker Sarah Hock, who said the money will be divided among Lake, Miner and Moody counties.
"Each county has a respective local fund established through ICAP that helps pay residential utility bills that are past due," Hock said. "Money from Heat the Streets will be provided to households strictly for heating bill assistance."
This is the first time IAUW has hosted the Heat the Streets 5K, and plans to coordinate the event again in 2020.
