North Brookfield Savings Bank Donates $2,000 to Ware Fuel Bank
With cold New England temperatures and unpredictable winter weather in full force, North Brookfield Savings Bank has made a donation of $2,000 to the Ware Fuel Bank program, in support of individuals and families in need.
The Ware Fuel Bank is a locally-supported emergency assistance program that helps struggling Ware residents meet heating fuel costs, including those who are facing utility shut-offs. The program is administered by the United Church of Ware and has been serving the community for 31 years.
“North Brookfield Savings Bank is so pleased to be able to support the Ware Fuel Bank once again,” said North Brookfield President & CEO Donna Boulanger. “Their mission of aiding local residents in keeping safe and warm during difficult winters is so vital. They are an outstanding organization that we are proud to have an ongoing and meaningful partnership with.
So far this 2018-2019 winter season, the Ware Fuel Bank, has provided 30 families with fuel assistance. Applications still being accepted for emergency aid. Families are eligible for aid once a heating season with check distributions made payable directly to their utility providers.
"Because of the support we receive from local businesses such as the North Brookfield Savings Bank, the Ware Fuel Bank has been able to support families that really need a helping hand to keep their heat on through the cold days of winter,” said Reverend Charles Taylor, United Church of Ware. “We are able to help them because the Bank has continued to donate to this local cause. We are thankful for their continued support."
