Nearly $1.1 million has been raised over the past 12 years to help thousands of local families in need.

Our Cause


For many in our area, one unexpected financial setback can make the difference when it comes to being able to afford their utility payments. These families and individuals may have to choose between buying groceries or prescriptions, or keeping the lights and heat on in their homes.


The Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth fundraising campaign raises money and awareness for those in our community who are in need of utility assistance. Funds are managed by the non-profit organization, Common Fund of the Heartland. 


Housing and/or utility assistance are the top unmet needs in our community, as resources are limited. Your support and participation in our event will help mitigate winter’s toll on those in need.

Will you join us to help those in need?


There are three easy ways to help:


  1. Register for our March 7 run and walk.


    Make a tax-deductible donation directly to the cause.


  3. Become a sponsor and add to the number of families we can assist.
