Thank You For Your Donations

Many SPU customers have signed up for our Bill RoundUp. This voluntary program has an SPU customer authorize SPU to take their monthly billing and round up the bill total to the next whole dollar. These extra cents between the actual bill amount and the rounded whole dollar are collected all year and then distributed in June to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life, and in December to the Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry. For example, if the customer's bill is calculated to $77.39, on RoundUp the customer's bill lists a RoundUp amount of $.61, and their total bill to pay is $78.00. All of these RoundUp cents add up throughout the year. In 2015, SPU forwarded $673 to the Sun Prairie Relay For Life in June, and $676 to the Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry in December. These RoundUp donations are tax deductible and SPU will send participants a statement in January for the previous year contributions. To join, simply fill out the SPU Bill RoundUp application and return it to our office. Join today!

During November, SPU solicits donations on behalf of the Sun Prairie Community Help Organization (SPCHO) from the residents of Sun Prairie. We call this our Lighting Effects Drive. During our LED Drive Sun Prairie Utilities will gift a donor one string of LED holiday lights (maximum 3 strings per household) for every $20 donation made through the SPU office. Through community contributions, SPU has forwarded $770 of donations to the SPCHO in 2015. Thank you to all who have contributed.

The Sun Prairie community is a caring and generous one. The growth of the city has also seen an increase in the number of our neighbors who require various forms of assistance to maintain their family and their household. As help needs continue to grow with the city, there is an increased strain on local resources to assist. If you have been considering trying to help or to make a contibution of time , talent, or treasure please take whatever action you can to help. From donating a few cents each month with the SPU Bill RoundUp or volunteering at the Sun Prairie Emergency Food Pantry, know that every little bit helps.
