NewsChannel 3 is taking action to help you stay warm this winter.

And we're getting results!

Today, we opened up our taking action help line to make sure you know how to apply for federal money to pay your energy bills this winter.

Last year, the average family who qualified got $277 to go toward their heating bills.

Today, our volunteers talked to more than 800 viewers!

The phone lines were busy with dozens of volunteers answering your calls all day.
