The Power to Care
No one should have to choose between food or medicine and electricity. But sadly, many of our elderly and disabled neighbors living on low or fixed incomes face these choices every day.
Through Entergy's The Power to Care program, local nonprofit agencies are able to provide emergency bill payment assistance to seniors and disabled individuals in crisis. None of the donations are used for fundraising or administrative purposes, so 100 percent of your contribution will go to help those in need. When you give, Entergy shareholders will match your gift, up to $500,000, doubling the impact of your contribution.
Together, we have the power to provide immediate help and hope for those in need.
Inquiries on applying for The Power to Care should be directed to the New Orleans Council on Aging (NOCOA). To donate to the Power to Care, click here.

LIHEAP is funded through the federal government and works with the community action agencies to help customers pay for and keep electric service in their homes.
