Heating assistance programs reviewed at forum

Unitil Corporation, (www.unitil.com), a provider of natural gas and electricity to customers throughout New England , is urging its customers to be aware of all fuel assistance programs available to assist with heating costs as winter approaches.   That was the message shared with nearly 100 nonprofit and community leaders who attended a heating assistance forum Thursday at the Colonial Hotel in Gardner . The forum was hosted jointly by Unitil and the United Way of North Central Massachusetts.
