SMECO Members Helping Members


Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative reminds its members that they can help their neighbors who are struggling to pay their electric bills when they contribute to Members Helping Members. Members can sign up to add $1, $5, or $10 to their electric bills each month.

Donations will go to Southern Maryland Tri-County Community Action Committee, which will give the money to customer-members who seek aid and meet the qualifications.

Find the form to donate here.

Those who would like to make a larger donation can mail a check to SMECO Members Helping Members, PO Box 1937, Hughesville, MD 20637.

Contributions to Members Helping Members are tax-deductible.

For more information, call 888-440-3311.
