Warm Your Neighbor Program Gives $100,000 Back to Community

Over the past 4 years, B&B Propane's Warm Your Neighbor (WYN) program has been providing assistance with heating costs to families who take pride and responsibility in paying their bills on time but suddenly can't because of an unexpected setback. Individuals, businesses, even local schools have shown their support by donating to WYN and with B&B Propane's match on every donation, the WYN program has been able to give back over $100,000 to families in our community.

To date over 200 families have received assistance from the WYN program. "Thank you does not seem like enough to express what WYN has done for us. This will not be forgotten by us or our families" is just one of the many heartfelt thank you's the company has received. The WYN program is available in all 16 counties in which B&B Propane services.

WYN is funded solely through donations and 100% of all money donated to WYN, including B&B Propane's matches, is donated to families in need. The costs to operate the program are fully paid for by B&B Propane, not from any donation dollars. "As long as there is a need for assistance and we continue to receive support and donations from the community, the WYN program will exist" says WYN program director Theresa Taylor.

B&B Propane is based in Houghton, Iowa, with additional offices located in Denmark, Donnellson, Eldon, Pulaski, and Mt. Pleasant. They provide service in 16 counties across Southeast Iowa and Northeast Missouri.
