Warming Hearts kick-off

The United Way of Pioneer Valley: Warming Hearts

Springfield, MA United Way of Pioneer Valley (UWPV) is proud to announce the kick-off of “Warming Hearts,” a program designed to help veterans and surviving spouses with fuel assistance.

During these trying times of skyrocketing fuel costs, UWPV wants to provide for the men and women who served our country, who may just need a little help to get through the winter,” remarks Jason Newmark, chair of the UWPV board.  “We are seeking support from the community to fund this program with a goal of $50,000 to tackle the hardships we know are out there. Our board of directors and staff are fully behind this initiative, and we encourage our neighbors to donate to Warming Hearts.”

UWPV has partnered with local Veterans Service Organizations and other veterans’ groups, as well as the local utility companies to reach out to those who qualify for the program, and to streamline the application process.

Donations for the program may be made through the UWPV website at www.uwpv.org/donate.  Alternatively, anyone wishing to donate by check may send it to United Way of Pioneer Valley, 1441 Main St., Suite 147, Springfield, MA  01103.
