Woodbridge Human Services has kicked off a Warm Hearts, Warm Homes Campaign to seek donations for the Town Fuel/Food Fund. The drive will run through December 31st. We are anticipating a need for $5,000.00 for our Fuel Bank and $2,000.00 for our Emergency Food Fund. These funds provide Woodbridge residents with emergency assistance with their primary heating source and emergency food.
“We are expecting an increase in the number of families applying for emergency fuel and food assistance this winter due to the decline in the economy”, stated Mary Ellen LaRocca, Director of Human Services. Since Human Services is anticipating an increased need for fuel and food this year, they are inviting schools, church groups and civic organizations to consider sponsoring fundraisers to join its mission to keep our residents warm and safe this winter season.
Checks should be made out to the Town of Woodbridge Fuel/Food Fund and mailed to Woodbridge Human Services Department, 11 Meetinghouse Lane, Woodbridge, CT 06525.
