AmerenUE Gives ‘$100 for 100’ throughout Missouri

In this season of giving, AmerenUE is reaching out to customers across Missouri who need some extra help in these tough economic times. UE announced today the “$100 for 100” program at five locations throughout the company’s service territory – St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson City, Cape Girardeau and Kirksville. While announced in these particular locations, its benefits will reach customers across the entire UE service territory.

In all, 500 families will each get $100 energy gift certificates. That’s a total of $50,000 that UE is giving to Missouri families this holiday season. By partnering with local charities and aid organizations, UE is identifying customers who need energy assistance but might not necessarily qualify for traditional programs.

“We recognize that the holiday season can be particularly challenging for some of our customers,” says Warner Baxter, President & CEO of AmerenUE. “As a community leader throughout Missouri, we want to lend a helping hand during these difficult times.”

“Throughout the year AmerenUE gives back to the community through a variety of programs. This is just one more way we can help make sure families are able to enjoy their holiday,” says Richard Mark, Senior Vice President, Customer Operations.

AmerenUE, founded in 1902, provides electric and gas service to approximately 1.2 million customers across central and eastern Missouri, including the greater St. Louis area. UE serves 57 Missouri counties and 500 towns. The company's electric rates are among the lowest in the nation. For more information, visit www.amerenue.com.
