Pre-Emergency Heating Assistance Planning Meeting: Thursday, July 24, 10:00 a.m. at Ellsworth City Hall Council Chambers, sponsored by Washington Hancock Community Agency. In response to the rising cost of heating fuel and the increasing number of families who will need assistance this winter, many community groups and social service agencies will be inundated with calls for help. Churches, food pantries, homeless shelters, other non-profits, community groups, elected officials, and businesses need to discuss strategies to help people stay warm this coming winter. Agenda for the meeting will include: a review of the scope of the problem; identify resources available in Hancock County; come up with ideas to address the needs; how to network and collaborate to better help families; and plan for those in crisis situations.
