For Immediate Release: Sept. 9, 2010

 

PayShare...Because You Care

Make a Difference Today, Tomorrow, or Whenever You Can!

 

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Sept. 9, 2010) More than 22,000 Goodyear homes use city water and sanitation services, and with today's rough economic climate, more than 1,000 of our residents' accounts are past due during any given billing period. When late payments become shut-off notices, the cost of keeping the water running and the trash picked up can become a true hardship.

 

 

PayShare Utility Assistance Fund is a new program recently established in the City of Goodyear which allows City utility customers to make a difference in the lives of others who are facing economic difficulties by making one-time or repeating donations to the PayShare fund in any amount, no matter how small. The funds will go towards helping residents in need catch up on their water and sanitation accounts.

 

 

The program, PayShare...Because You Care, provides a way for residents to contribute money to a fund through their utility bill which is then used to assist residents who qualify for help in paying their past due water and sanitation accounts.

 

 

The PayShare fund accepts monthly contributions from residents which can be added to your current account by simply subscribing online.  For example, you can set up a monthly contribution of $2, or any amount, that will be added to your account on each bill you receive, and put then directly into the PayShare fund.  One-time donations of any amount are also needed, and can be made by check payable to the City of Goodyear; please write "PayShare" on the check memo line.

 

 

The PayShare program is administered by Goodyear in partnership with the City of Avondale?s Community Action Program (CAP). Goodyear residents who are in immediate need may visit the Avondale CAP Office at City of Avondale Community Center, 1007 South Third St. in Avondale, and complete an application for assistance. Eligibility requirements include verification of income and a copy of the past due City of Goodyear utility bill. Qualified residents will receive a voucher for up to $150 toward payment of their Goodyear utility bills.
