On Friday’ Nov. 22, the Bristol Area Lions Foundation made its annual $500 donation to the Community Energy Fund of Lincoln County.

The Community Energy Fund partners with the 18 towns of Lincoln County to identify those families in need, especially those who do not necessarily qualify for state or federal heating assistance programs. The Community Energy Fund then contacts their local energy supplier to schedule and pay for a delivery. This may be oil, kerosene, electricity, propane or wood.

The fund aided 281 families with $130,338 in heating costs in the last fiscal year, 2017-2018. All the administrative costs are covered by volunteers and businesses donating advertising, printing, and other services.

Last year the Community Energy Fund received a $50,000 gift from the Reny Charitable Foundation, which will enable the fund to expand its work to the repair and replacement of home heating systems.

To help keep one’s neighbors warm, donations can be mailed to the Community Energy Fund of Lincoln County, P.O. Box 40, Bristol, ME 04539.

The Bristol Area Lions will distribute Christmas food baskets on Saturday morning, Dec. 21 in Bristol and South Bristol.
