GREENWALD, LAMPITT ANNOUNCE $150,000 IN HOME-HEATING ASSISTANCE

Sunoco Foundation grant will cover 600 families’ home-heating bills

(PENNSAUKEN)— Assemblyman Louis Greenwald and Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (both D-Camden) yesterday announced a $150,000 grant from the Sunoco Foundation to the Camden County Council on Economic Opportunity.  

The grant—given as part of the Foundation’s Low Income Energy Assistance Program—will cover the home-heating bills of approximately 600 low-income families in Camden County.

“I’m proud to stand with the Sunoco Foundation to present this critically needed assistance to South Jersey families,” said Greenwald. “The current economic crisis didn’t start in New Jersey, and it won’t end in New Jersey, but it’s hitting family budgets hard. This grant will provide important help to those who need it most—those who can’t afford their heating bills as we approach the heart of winter.”
