Heating Assistance Available

We are all part of the Operation ~

With the arrival of winter, Operation Fuel is now accepting applications for emergency energy assistance. In an effort to help families in need, I would like to share information about how to apply for heating assistance or how to make a donation to the program.

If you or someone you know might require heating assistance, please call the
state's free infoline at 211 or visit the Operation Fuel website at www.operationfuel.org for more information.

The non-profit organization provides emergency energy assistance to families
who may have no other option to cover energy costs. Most recipients are either
elderly or working families with children.

In addition, if you have the ability to donate to this program, I encourage you
to do so. Each winter, Operation Fuel receives many more requests for energy
assistance than they can fulfill. They are hoping to raise at least $1 million
from individual donors.

By mail, donations for Operation Fuel can be sent to:

Operation Fuel
One Regency Drive, Suite 200
Bloomfield, CT 06002

Donations may also be made online at www.operationfuel.org.
