Walk to support fuel bank
The fourth annual Cold Homes, Warm Hearts 5K walk to raise funds for the Community Fuel Bank of New Milford will be held Sunday, Jan. 11 at 1 p.m.
The event kicks off in front of the Richmond Citizen Center at 40 Main St.
Registration, which will start at 12:30 p.m., is $10 per person or $20 per family. Participants are encouraged to collected pledges.
Last winter, 850 New Milford households received more than $525,000 in federal energy assistance.
Even so, hundreds of people ran out of heating assistance, relying on the Community Fuel Bank to help them through the winter.
Last winter the fuel bank ran out of funds for the first time. The walk is the prime community fundraiser.
