None of our neighbors should have to choose between purchasing medicine, buying sufficient food, or keeping their aging parents, or their children warm.
It is incumbent upon all of us to care for those who need our help.

Journal Entry for First Half 2019-2020- Heating Season
Dear Journal ,
This winter has presented some brutal temperatures, but not much snow yet. On Volunteer Day, many community hands helped their neighbors get a jump on the freezing cold by donating, cutting, splitting and delivering 16 cords to them by truck. Ten cords were stacked for emergency access by all.
In addition to these 26 cords...
During the 1st half of the 2019-20 Heating Season 32 households assisted with:
- 9 fuel oil deliveries
- 2 Propane deliveries
- 12 cords of wood delivered
- 1 load of wood pellets
- 3 kerosene deliveries
- 3 electricity payments
- 1 furnace repair
- 1 family helped from our garage
- Several Boxes of Socks given to Dimitri's Box o' Sox
- Several families invited to the woodbank
There have been rewarding moments when we have also been able to help some deserving people in Hillsborough, Warner, Concord, Henniker, Webster, Sutton, and Danbury.
We have also, thankfully, been able to make a donation to one of our churches and to Loaves & Fishes to assist them in their mission to keep people warm throughout cold and hard times. Also, the Contoocook Carry Community Fund has continued to assist the Town's Human Services Department with a donation to its winter Fuel Assistance Fund.
We’ll add our deliveries for the second half of this heating season in late spring.
