GNEF Sets Goal to Meet Anticipated Need
MAGNEF 2017-2018 handout
Massachusetts residents’ support of their neighbors in need was evident during last year’s campaign as the Fund surpassed $450,00,000 in donations while assisting more than 1,245 households. As the economy continues to rebound, the Fund’s goal for 2017- 18 has been set at $500,000. It is anticipated that the money raised will help provide energy assistance to more than 1,500 Massachusetts families this winter season and throughout the spring. The Salvation Army, which administers the Fund, is already beginning to see a rise in the number of phone calls from families in need. In fact, the Fund expects to receive thousands of requests for aid this winter alone. And the need doesn’t end with the cold weather. Families in temporary crisis also request assistance with their energy bills even when the weather warms up. The need is year-round. To make a donation, please look for the green Good Neighbor donation envelope provided with your utility bill or simply visit www.magoodneighbor.org. Also, those that are in need can visit the more than 30 local Salvation Army Community Centers throughout the state.
