El Paso, Texas (KTSM) — Big Hearts of El Paso Fund is an initiative aimed at assisting El Paso County residents who are behind on their electric bill payments and they are getting big help from DYOPATH, a managed service provider and information technology provider.

DYOPATH’s pledge will added to the grand total of contributions made to the Bright Hearts of El Paso fund bringing the donation total to more than $166,000. This total also includes El Paso Electric as they will match 100% of DYOPATH’s donation of $2,000.
