"Conectiv remains commit- ted to its customers who have dif- ficulty paying their energy bills. Our experience has shown that most customers want to pay for the energy they use. Some of them, however, who are suddenly faced with economic hardships such as unemployment or medical bills, are just not able to do so. spokesman. Hoy said that if Conectiv&apos;s cus- tomers support the fund this year as generously as they have in the past, the result will be another successful fund drive. Last year, customers contributed $225,000. For every $3 donated by cus- tomers, Conectiv will match $1 up to a maximum of $70,000. A check for $10,000 has been pre- sented to the Salvation Army of Salisbury, Md., to provide initial funding for the campaign. To con- tribute, checks should be made payable to the Good Neighbor En- ergy Fund and mailed in the enve- lope marked "Good Neighbor En- ergy Fund" that is enclosed with the November or January bill.
