“Operation Fuel” says it has run out of money for this winter’s fuel assistance program. Director Pat Wrice says through last week, Operation Fuel and its network of more than 100 fuel banks had helped more than 27-hundred households with emergency energy assistance this winter, but have used up the available $850-thousand in funds
She says during the last week of January, Operation Fuel’s fuel banks processed more applications than they did for the entire month of January last year.
Wrice says the program hopes to raise an additional $200,000 to keep the program operating through May.
