Success Stories

An older couple in town had always burned firewood for heat, the mans health was failing so in the fall he had a propane heater installed. Part way through the winter the man was admitted to the hospital then a nursing home. His 74 year old partner came inĀ  and said the chimney was bad she could not burn wood and needed help with buying propane. Her income was to high for general assistance guidelines but we were able to use United Way funds to help her purchase propane
