The "Good Neighbor" Program a convenient way to enable our utility customers to assist those less fortunate by adding a few dollars to the amount of their bill. Funds generated through this program are forwarded to Crisis Assistance Ministries of Gastonia who assist individuals in paying their utility bills in times of need. This assistance is especially important during the winter and summer months when the temperature and weather conditions can be extreme. There are two ways to participate in the Good Neighbor Program:
If you would like to make a one-time contribution to the program, just indicate the amount on the return stub of your bill beside the wording “Good Neighbor Contribution.” If no indication is made, any overpayments will be applied to your account. Make your monthly payment for the total amount of your bill plus your contribution. For example, if your monthly charges total $100.00 and you wish to contribute $5.00 to the Good Neighbor Program, your payment should be $105.00. Return your bill stub with your payment. Mail your payment in the return envelope provided or place in the overnight drop boxes located behind the Garland Business Center on York Street, and also outside Cramerton Town Hall.
