Help Oil Heat Cares!

My twin and I are fundraising for Oil Heat Cares and hope you can help us help others. I'll be walking on behalf of Team HeatingHelp.com at Oil Heat Cares' Care to Ride event on May 22, 2017.

Back in 2005, our dad and friends came up with an idea to assist those who are having trouble heating their homes due to failing heating equipment. Oil Heat Cares was born. The organization and its volunteers help dozens of families in need each year by installing new heating systems. The reliability of a heating system provides more than just a warm home or community center. The individuals served are able to keep themselves and their loved ones healthy and the centers can continue to provide vital programs for people in need.

Please consider making a donation to this great cause. Thank you!

    No, my wife is the best, but I will take second place.
    This is a good cause, and at the moment work is good, so the timing is good for a donation.
    Glad to help.

    Many thanks to Mike L. and the Secor Family. We're now at $1,140 - almost halfway to our goal.

    Here's how Oil Heat Cares helped an elderly woman in Bristol by replacing her leaking boiler. http://oilheatcares.com/oil-heat-cares-replaces-a-leaking-boiler-for-an-elderly-lady-in-bristol/ Imagine having a bad hip and having to mop up and re-fill your boiler by hand. Now she's safe and comfortable. This is just one of the many reasons why we love Oil Heat Cares (and you for supporting this great cause!).

    How is this fund raiser going @Erin Holohan Haskell ? With all the good people on this site, both Pro's and Home owners, I'm sure we ought to be able to meet/exceed your expectations.There are a lot of people out there far less fortunate than any of us. They need a break too, guys.

    Mrs. McCarrol of NJ is widowed and lives alone on a limited fixed income. She works two jobs just to make ends meet. She would purchase just a minimum quantity of fuel oil on each delivery. This past winter, her heating system broke and she couldn't afford to replace it. And then Oil Heat Cares stepped in to help.

    You can help too by making a donation to Oil Heat Cares here. Every little bit helps. Thanks!

    And that's just one of many stories of people that Oil Heat Cares and its volunteers have helped. Here's how they helped a single mother of four after the flooding in Ellicott City, MD.



    As Chairman Dave Bessette says, "It’s projects like this that are the reason we support Oil Heat Cares. Just take a look at the picture of this happy family. Knowing they will be warm this winter makes it all worthwhile.”

    This is Oil Heat Cares' main fundraiser, so let's support their great work.

    We just received an anonymous donation of $500. Thank you so much!

    We have now raised $2,115 and are nearly at our goal of $2,500 for Oil Heat Cares. Think we can get there before the event next Monday?
