PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

With the economy as it is and with most fuel prices consistently rising, the need for fuel assistance is more urgent than ever. Because of federal cutbacks, the amount being given in fuel assistance is considerably less this year although most fuel prices have increased greatly. Many people that have received fuel assistance have already run out and desperately need additional assistance. Others are keeping their heat dangerously low in fear of running out.

If you would like to make a donation to help those Groton residents in need of additional fuel assistance, make your check payable to:

“The Friends of the Groton Elders”

P. O. Box 289

West Groton, MA 01472

Memo: Fuel Assistance

The donations will go only to those residents that have already used and/or run out of their Low-Income Home Energy Assistance.

If you or a Groton resident you know needs fuel assistance, call the Groton Senior Center to set up an appointment to complete a new application or apply for additional assistance at 978-448-1170. All information remains completely confidential.
