Use #GivingTuesday to support H2O-Help To Others Water Bill Assistance Program     
H2O Logo
The Help 2 Others program is a 501(c)(3) community-based program that assists people in crisis through the generosity of donations. Unfortunately, requests for support outnumber donations each year.

With your generous contribution, we could do more. Each and every donation goes directly to helping a local family in Hampton Roads that faces losing water service because a sudden crisis has temporarily left them unable to pay their bill. Could you imagine a day without water?
