Madison Neighbor to Neighbor News: It Takes A Village

Polson kids are working on a project to support the N2N energy assistance program

Peg Butler of Madison Youth and Family Services Peer Helper Program works with middle school kids at Polson. She contacted us with news that the Polson kids were working on a project to support the N2N energy assistance program.

The kids constructed 7 miniature houses that are collection boxes. You will be seeing these all over the downtown area. The Polson kids hope to raise money that will go directly to N2N to help rebuild the fuel assistance program which has been depleted. 

(Federal and State energy assistance has been cut by 50%.)

If you'd like to join them in helping to warm your neighbors, please send a tax deductable donation to:

The Madison Foundation N2N                
P.O. Box 446
Madison, Ct 06443

or donate online: www.themadisonfoundation.org


Please add Polson Fuel Fund, on the subject line so the kids will know you are supporting their efforts.

A very worth cause! I wanted to let the organization know that there is an additional way to raise funds that would be easy to do and not cost any money! Contact me for more information - joegiant@comcast.net
