Westborough Women's Club and Schools Partner to "Keep the Heat On"

Written by Michael (admin)

The Westborough Woman's Club and Westborough schools recently announced a partnership to  help  with the town's fuel assistance program.  "Keep The Heat On'' will involve community members of all ages collecting coins or making donations of any amount to the fuel assistance program in town.
"I think this is a great way to reach across the many ages of community members to assist those individuals and families in need this year," said Judith Wilchynski, president of the Westborough Woman's Club.  "Our club is constantly discussing the needs of the community and where our fund raising money can make the most impact. This is a perfect example, as it is available for any family or individual in need."

Fales Elementary and Mill Pond Intermediate Schools will have coin collection jars  in their building for donations.  Donations may also be dropped off at the Glass Heron, corner West Main St. at the rotary through January.  School collections will be collected through December 15th.  A donation may, also,  be made by check payable to the Friends of the Westborough Senior Center.  It may be mailed to Friends of the Westborough Senior Center, P.O. Box 1072, Westborough, 01581.

There is a constant need for assistance at any year, but especially in the coming months. This allows the school children to participate in this season of giving over the next few months.  Donations will be accepted at the schools through December 15th.  Donations may be sent to the Friends of the Westborough Senior Center at any time during the year.
"The need is here in this town, and will help supplement other programs in place for fuel assistance.  I look forward to this partnership with our community and school children," Wilchynski said.
