Donate to ‘Heat Our Neighbor’
To help local families facing hardship in paying their home heating bills, the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce has sponsored the “Heat our Neighbor” program for the last seven years.
Realizing that energy costs have soared, Chamber officers have concentrated on raising money for the fund.
This week they said they deeply appreciate to those that contributed this year to the fund that helps Bolton households pay their home energy expenses.
Special acknowledgements go out to The Sagamore, Norowal Marina & Chrissy’s Chairs and several other local businesses for their generosity.
Bolton residents in need of assistance with their heat are urged to stop by the Bolton Chamber office and pick up an application or call 644-3831 to obtain one.
To make a donation, send a check to Bolton Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 368, Bolton Landing, NY 12814.
