This past week the Carrboro Board of Aldermen heard a joint presentation from IFC's Chris Moran and OWASA Board Members Braxton Foushee and Wm Stott about Taste of Hope. Taste of Hope is a joint effort of OWASA and the Inter-Faith Council. Any OWASA customer can sign up to have their water bill rounded up to the nearest dollar; the extra change allows IFC to assist struggling local families with their water bills.
At first it may not sound like much, but a home with no water is no home at all. Even a little help with an OWASA bill can make the difference between being homeless or not for families trying to make ends meet in this difficult economic time.
This program will cost you less than $12 per year, but can help prevent homelessness in our local community. To learn more, go to:
