The Chesapeake Emergency Energy Recipient Program (CHEERP), better known as SHARING, is an approved 501(c) non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1983.
Chesapeake Utilities Corporation created the SHARING Program with donations provided by customers, employees, the community and Chesapeake Utilities Corporation to ensure that the elderly, ill and those facing financial hardship are not forgotten during the cold winter months when energy bills are at their peak. In the past 10 years, more than 2,000 grants totaling almost $500,000 have been distributed by our Sharing Program.
The SHARING Program is led by a Board of Trustees who volunteer their time to ensure this mission is met. They participate in community functions to raise funds while also making those in the community aware of the program and its benefits. The grant levels from the SHARING Program have been level or increased since they were incorporated and now some needy customers can receive grants of almost $1,000 if needed.
