It gets cold here in Maine! During the long winters, keeping the house warm can really start to break the bank. For the past five winters LRVC has been turning returnable bottles and cans into emergency heating assistance for those in need. Our thanks go out to all who drop off, and to those who collect and count. The money raised (over $11,000.00/yr on average) from returns along with cash donations from local businesses and organizations have allowed us to help over 40 families each season over the past couple of years! 100% of all monies received go directly to heating assistance.
The heating assistance program runs from Oct. thru April as funds become available.
Residents of the following towns/areas may be eligible for assistance:
Our current donation sheds are located at:
- Marston’s Redemption, Naples
- American Legion Hall, Naples
- Town Common, Naples
- Aubuchon Hardware, Naples
- Food City, Bridgton
- Lampron’s Little Mart, Bridgton
- Corry’s Redemption, Raymond
