Residents of Putney may have access to emergency heat assistance from Putney Family Services, according to Patricia Field, the organization’s executive director.
“Putney residents who need help with their heating bills have several resources,” she said. “We work directly with families to access the help they need, and then if they still have need we have some funds available for fuel.” She said that Putney Family Services had earmarked the proceeds of a food sale at the Putney School Harvest Festival for emergency heating assistance. “We made it clear that we were raising money specifically to help families struggling with fuel bills,” she said. “The community was very generous in supporting our fundraiser.”
Putney residents can call Putney Family Services at 387-2120 for help accessing emergency heat assistance.
