The new portal allows residents to donate without having to log in to the utility billing portal. Simply click on the button marked “donate now” at www.westerville.org/helps and complete the form. As with online utility bill payments, a transaction fee will apply.
Residents interested in contributing monthly are encouraged to email email@example.com or call (614) 901-6430. There is no transaction fee for this option.
More than 50 households have benefitted from the program since January 2020. Residents needing financial assistance may apply for the program.
