Community Corner, Heat for the Needy

Heat for the Needy program offers free heating systems.

Once again we are asking members of the community to nominate individuals and families who need a new heating system but can’t afford one. We do this in conjunction with our Heat for the Needy program, now in its 14th year.

Every year, we select 8–12 homeowners to receive a new system free of charge. Members of the Tudi team and their families then volunteer their time for one day to install the heating systems. To nominate a local resident in need, please provide us some background on the homeowner’s situation and contact information for both yourself and the nominee.

Send your letter by Nov. 30, 2012, to Heat for the Needy, 343 Munson Ave., McKees Rocks, PA 15136. Or if you prefer, you may also send an email to Learn more by going to
