“Twenty-five utilities in the commonwealth, including Rowley Municipal Light Plant, support the fund through various matching and giving programs,” said Daniel Folding, general manager at Rowley Municipal Light Plant. “But the generosity of all our energy customers is the key to keeping our neighbors in need warm this year.”
Massachusetts residents who wish to support the fund can “Give the Gift of Warmth” by using the mint-colored Good Neighbor Energy Fund donation envelope found as an insert in monthly energy bills or through the “add a dollar” program some energy companies offer that allows customers to contribute on their monthly bill payment by $1 or more. Anyone can also donate with a credit card online by visiting www.magoodneighbor.org and checking the appropriate box or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY. Or, donors can simply mail a check payable to “The Good Neighbor Energy Fund” and send it to The Salvation Army, 25 Shawmut Road, Canton, MA 02021-1408. Participating energy companies support their respective customers’ generosity through various giving programs
