operationfuelAs the state breaks free of a cold snap that had temperatures in single digits across Connecticut earlier this week, Operation Fuel is once again seeking help in providing emergency heating assistance.

The Blomfield-based non-profit, which is the only private statewide emergency energy assistance program in Connecticut, has begun its annual fund raising campaign with a goal of raising $800,000 in a month.

That money will be used to augment about $2.6 million it has on hand to provide heating fuel assistance grants to the elderly, disabled and lower-income working families who don’t qualify for government-funded programs.

Donations can be sent to Operation Fuel, One Regency Drive, Suite 200, Bloomfield, CT, 06002, or made online at http://www.operationfuel.org.
