United Way and Community Foundation partner to provide food and utility assistance

In response to the increasing demand for food assistance, United Way of North Central Massachusetts and the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts made 16 grants to help meet an increasing demand for food and heating assistance.  “Because of the stubbornly high demand, we were able to make $70,000 in grants, which will help keep families from going hungry and cold,” commented Phil Grzewinski, president of United Way of North Central Massachusetts and Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts.
