Doug Mann, manager of Energy West in Payson, is amazed by all the generous people in the Rim Country.
"All of the anonymous folks who have contacted our office wanting to sponsor a family for their winter gas bill is astounding," Mann said.
"The Roundup's articles on the struggles some individuals and families will have paying their winter heat bills have prompted folks from around Rim Country to step up and offer to sponsor a month or a winter's worth of warmth for some of our neighbors who are struggling.
"It warms our hearts to see generous folks sharing with others in need in the Rim Country. These folks are sharing from their hearts, and they definitely deserve a warm thanks and recognition," he said.
Mann said people interested in helping someone in need, may telephone the Energy West office at (928) 474-2294.
