Letter: Help Heat Cold Homes in Wilton

WILTON, Conn. - A warm home in the winter isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity, especially for the young, elderly and frail.

Due to tough federal funding cuts to the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program, the Wilton Warm Up Fund, which provides emergency heat assistance to Wilton residents, is facing unprecedented financial need. So far this year, we have 64 Wilton families applying for assistance. 

Our goal is to raise $63,000 in a short period of time, with all of the funding for the Wilton Warm Up Fund coming from individual and corporate donations. Please consider helping out a Wilton neighbor and making a donation.

One hundred percent of your tax-deductible contributions will go directly to a Wilton family in need. Please make your tax deductible donation to the Wilton Interfaith Council Inc., and mail to 180 School Road, Wilton, CT 06897.

Thank you for your consideration of our request.
