      Dear UPFFA Member:

      I wanted to introduce you to an exciting new program that we have developed with Discount Power, a licensed electricity provider in Connecticut. As a locally owned and operated company that has enjoyed significant success over the past few years, they believe it is important to support the communities that have helped create that success and that’s why they’ve created the "You Save, We All Win" program.

      The You Save, We All Win Program is designed to help community, education and nonprofit based groups with on-going support for their programs. We have partnered with Discount Power and they will provide monthly contributions to help us fund in part:

      Emergency Relief Fund for Firefighters and their Families in times of need

      Muscular Dystrophy Association

      UPFFA Scholarship Fund

      UPFFA Health and Safety Committee

      Continuing Health and Safety Education for Fire Fighters

      For every customer that enrolls with Discount Power we will receive a contribution for as long as that customer remains with Discount Power. You and your friends save on your electric bills and the UPFFA wins some much needed support for our worthwhile programs. "You Save, We All Win."

      It’s really that simple. Once established, Discount Power tracks all of our usage, makes the contributions directly to the UPFFA account and provides an on line report detailing each month’s contribution.

      Please contact Kevin Jannetty at 203-982-4866, or logon to www.upffapower.org or call Discount Power at 877-259-7693 for details. Just mention the name of your group to our Customer Service representative and they’ll take it from there. Start saving today and help the UPFFA win tomorrow!

      Fraternally,
