CINCH Program part of city utility bills

The City of Marlow is partnering with the Marlow Samaritans – the only United Way agency in Marlow – to provide funds for those in need in relation to City of Marlow utility bills. The program began with the Jan. 1, 2018 utility bills.

The program is known as CINCH – or Caring In Neighborhoods with Cooling and Heating.

The idea is similar to a round-up program. Utility customers of the City of Marlow can round-up their bill to the nearest dollar and that extra amount will be deposited in a special account.

That account will be administered by the Marlow Samaritans, which through a pre-determined process, will help those in need with their utility bills.

To give to this program, you simply need to round-up your bill to the next dollar. For instance, if your bill is $135.50, you can pay $136.00. The $135.50 required to pay for your City of Marlow utility bill will be credited to your account. The extra 50 cents will be deposited towards the CINCH program.

You will know that the little extra you provided will be helping another Marlow family or individual stay warm this winter.

It’s easy to help those in need. In fact, it is a CINCH.
