Why Should You Support WEC?

As a new non-profit, WEC is constantly being asked, “What do you do?” Because WEC is the only non-profit that offers free septic services, many people are wondering, “Why is this important?” As WEC seeks donations and supporters, it is particularly important that volunteers and sponsors understand the cause and mission.

What They Do

WEC provides free services to low-income households, including senior citizens, veterans, disabled and handicapped.

WEC, in collaboration with English Sewage Disposal, provides services in Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem, Southern Camden, Cape May, and Atlantic Counties.

In addition to septic services, WEC promotes environmental responsibility through education and advocacy.

Why Is This Important

Due to the economic situation, many people are not able to pay for wastewater management. The services can be expensive and are usually not a top priority for those struggling to pay their bills.

According to market research, there are 53,283 households in the target market that could qualify for the charitable services.

Without the proper services, septic systems can be dangerous to the environment. When systems are not functioning properly, households are unable to complete neccessary tasks such as flushing the toilet, draining the bath tub, and washing laundry. In severe cases, sewage can come into the home, which is unsanitary and dangerous. Another problem is flooding in yards and basements, depending on the location of the system. When drain fields are not working properly, sewage can get into the soil and local water sources. For our personal health and the quality of our water, it is essential that septic systems be properly managed.

To support Wastewater Eco-Charities, visit their table at The Eco-Fair at Wheaton Village in Millville, NJ on Saturday, May 1, 2010. Admission is free, and there will be live music, a vast about information, and refreshments.

Also, check out the affinity program at TD Bank. By proclaiming WEC as your affinity program, you can support the company without giving any of your own money. If you are not already a customer at TD Bank, you may be eligible to receive $25 for opening a new account. Contact Jamie for a copy of the flyer.
