(WREG-TV) The MIFA Plus-1 telethon is tonight.
Plus-1 was created in 1982 and is a partnership between MIFA and MLGW that provides utility assistance for individuals and families in financial crisis.
MLGW customers fund the program through one-time donations or by adding a dollar or more to their utility bills each month.
Last year enough money was raised to help about 1,300 families.
The Plus-1 telethon is tonight from 6:30-7 p.m. on WREG-TV.
