Once again the Duxbury Senior Center and the Friends of the Duxbury Council on Aging will be hosting their BLACK TIE BINGO night on January 24, 2015. This is a very important fundraiser for the Duxbury Interfaith Council and allows them to provide heat and the basic necessities of life to those in need. It is our plan to raise over $15,000 to assist 100 families, 400-500 people!
There will be raffles throughout the night to raise the money needed, and we are looking for donations of tickets for professional or college sporting events, concerts, etc. If you have season subscriptions, we would be extremely appreciative of any donation. You will help warm the homes of many. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. You may contact us at 781-934-5774.
The Duxbury Clipper had a nice article on it (thank you!):
About the fuel assistance program, also via the Clipper:
Fuel Assistance Gift Certificates
Got heat? Many people struggle to stay warm during the cold winter months. The Duxbury Interfaith Council has a Fuel Assistance Program, which assists low-income households in paying their home heating bills. This program runs through Apr. 30, 2015 for Duxbury residents, over the age of 60, who have been approved for fuel assistance. To help fund this program, the Duxbury Senior Center is selling gift certificates. These make great holiday gifts for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list, teachers, and hostess gifts. It’s a lovely gift to purchase in someone’s memory, too. Stop by the senior center’s front desk to purchase gift certificates or call for information: 781-934-5774 ext. 100.
