It is the tale of two fuels: one for the body and one for the home.
It is the best of times for The Community Food Pantry that feeds 600 families each month from the Towns of Bolton and Manchester. The consistent support of money, food and paper products allows MACC to feed a family for just $11.00 a week!
It is the worst of times for the MACC Fuel Bank. A harsh winter is predicted and federal and state officials have already announced that the funding for heating fuel will be drastically cut this winter. In addition to this alarming news, the economy has not recovered enough for struggling families to adequately heat their homes, so the need is expected to be greater than the availability of fuel.
What can we do as a community?
We can plan now to give the literal gift of warmth to our neighbors.
Will you join me to help fund MACC CharitiesWarm Gifts Program?
If you answer yes, we will stand ready to respond to the emergency fuel needs of our community.
If we all do what we can, it will be the best of times our two fuels.
