KEEPING OUR NEIGHBORS WARM
Cape and Islands United Way Announces $115,000 Donation for Fuel Assistance from National Grid
HYANNIS – The Cape and Islands United Way is happy to announce that it has received a $115,000 donation from National Grid to help those in need to offset winter heating costs. The utilities company charitable foundation provided the United Way with the donation to grant funding to local nonprofits that help residents through fuel assistance programs.
“We understand the economic challenges and hardships our communities and customers face, most especially, during the winter months. We are proud to partner with the Cape and Islands United Way to provide critical assistance to those most in need,” said William Ciocca, Community & Customer Manager, National Grid
Much like they did in 2022-23, the United Way grants from $10,000 to $30,000, will be awarded to Cape, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard nonprofits working to keep residents warm this winter.
“We are so grateful to National Grid for this grant that serves Cape and Islands residents. The demand for fuel assistance has been steadily on the rise and this will make an enormous impact,” said Mark Skala, President and CEO, Cape and Islands United Way
All regional nonprofits are encouraged to apply. The Cape & Islands United Way’s streamlined grant application portal will be open at the end of the year. Check capeandislandsuw.org for the 2023-24 application in late December.
