If colder temps are making you worry about the climbing heating bill, then mark your calendar for Tues., Jan. 6.

That’s the day that Organized Community Action Program will begin accepting call-in appointments for its regular heating assistance program, said program director Liz Seay Wednesday.

Seay said appointments are made on a first-come, first-served basis.

“And only one appointment per call will be given,” she said. “And remember if you’re applying that the utility bill must be in your name.”

Those needing assistance may begin calling at 8 a.m., Seay said.

No walk-ins will be taken and the OCAP office will be closed to take telephone calls.

“We’re thrilled that we can offer this for the community,” she said. “It’s so needed.”

To make an appointment, call 334-428-2660.
