Events Bring Music, Food, Fun and Heating Assistance

January 20, 2017 – Across the country, non-profits and fuel funds are kicking off campaigns to provide low-income energy assistance. In some places, community events are used to raise funds. Vermont and West Virginia are hosting such events in January and February. Vermont will start the “Ski for Heat” event on January 21, and West Virginia will kickoff the “Warming Hands and Hearts” Initiative on February 1.

Vermont’s Ski for Heat Event

Vermont’s Ski for Heat campaign has operated for over 17 years and has raised more than $380,000. All funds raised are donated to BROC-Community Action for use by local residents, even those who don’t qualify for LIHEAP assistance but are still in danger of “falling through the cracks.”

The event kicks off at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 21 with music by local blues singer Bob Stannard. Those attending the performance are encouraged to donate $20.
