THANK YOU NOTES FOR ASSISTANCE
I would like to thank everyone for all their help, from propane assistance to the weatherization program, and to all those who worked on my house. Me house is so nice and warm. I even saved $20 the first month on my electric bill. Thank you!
I am disabled and my health has been deteriorating. I have always been able to pay my bills. Lately though, my finances have been a burden and I have had difficulty paying my monthly bills. I have always been too proud to ask for help, but the staff here has helped me so much and I have my head above water again.
Mr. and Mrs. G
My husband and I don't even know how to put into words how grateful we are that you supplied our family of nine with so much good, healthy food. We moved here last fall, we had a death in our family and combined three households together. It has been so hard for everyone... our cupboards were bare, but now they're full!
