St. Rose of Lima Parish has launched the new “Food, Fuel, and Fiber Fund” to provide heating fuel and other necessities for residents of Livermore and Livermore Falls.

JAY — In an effort to help residents in need, St. Rose of Lima Parish has launched a “Food, Fuel, and Fiber Fund” to provide heating fuel and other necessities for residents of Livermore and Livermore Falls.

“The fund takes the torch from the recently closed Good Neighbor Fuel Fund (GNFF), a former ministry of the Tri-Town Ministerial Association,” said Max Becher, director of parish social ministry. “The GNFF provided fuel assistance for years to residents of Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls.”

Residents of Jay can apply to the Franklin County Ecumenical Heating Fund, which is not able to serve residents of Livermore and Livermore Falls since they are not in Franklin County.

“Our new ‘Food, Fuel, and Fiber Fund’ seeks to fill the void left by the GNFF by focusing specifically on these two communities,” said Becher.

The fund, operated by St. Rose of Lima Parish Social Ministry, is accepting donations and applications for the fund, which will also supply basic necessities like food and clothing, if needed. The fund will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted.

To apply for assistance through the fund, contact Stephanie Crowe at 207-897-2173, ext. 1203, or [email protected].
