This Valentine's Day, you can make a heartfelt difference in the lives of others

Share The Love

Beyond flowers, cards and candy, we have a different – and very impactful – way to “Share the Love” in honor of Valentine’s Day. 

By participating in our Share program, you directly help those in our community who need help to cover their utility bills.

Your contribution, no matter how small, makes a heartfelt difference. And TECO matches all contributions to Share, up to $500,000, each year. 

Here’s what some recent Share recipients had to say:

“I was unable to work due to my knee surgery and my social security was delayed. I just needed some assistance to get caught up. I am grateful for the Share program being able to assist me on my past due balance.” – Elizabeth in Lutz

“I had a stroke in 2019 which affected my right side. I am unable to work and on a fixed monthly income. I got behind on my electric bill and the Share program was able to assist me. Anytime I can get assistance it is truly a blessing!” – Sharon in Tampa

With a one-time or recurring automatic donation through your utility bill, you can make a meaningful impact on the lives of people like Elizabeth and Sharon. Your contribution helps ensure that others in our community can enjoy the warmth and comfort of essential utilities.

Last year, more than 500 TECO employees contributed nearly $60,000 to Share. Combined with customer donations, nearly $200,000 was collected and then matched by TECO.

We hope you’ll join us and other customers in making a difference in the lives of others – beyond cards, candy and roses. Our positive ripple effect will make this Valentine's Day more about the love we share with our entire community.
