Recipients of TEEG Services
This year TEEG provided 36,675 servings of support to local neighbors and friends.
TEEG is the area Fuel Bank for Operation Fuel. TEEG’s fuel bank is funded through generous donations from local residents, businesses, organizations and Operation Fuel. This program enables qualified individuals and families to receive a fuel delivery or utility payment in an emergency situation. Operation Fuel is a statewide 501(c)(3) funded through generous Connecticut residents and the public utility companies via the Annual Appeal to support Operations Fuel’s 501(c)(3), and private grants from area businesses, corporations, and foundations. TEEG also offers fuel assistance from a private fuel bank to residents of Thompson, Woodstock and Pomfret.
Assistance to Seniors
TEEG will assist area seniors with the application process for the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program. A caseworker will make home visits for housebound seniors in Thompson, Pomfret and Woodstock.
Contribute to Add-a-Dollar Program
By adding a dollar to your monthly utility bill, you can help Connecticut residents who are struggling to keep warm this winter. Chances are, they’re a lot like you, but they’re experiencing a temporary crisis, which has left them without enough money to heat their homes. Most don’t qualify for other assistance programs.
When you add a dollar to your utility bill, the company will match that dollar with a 50 cent contribution through a special community contribution fund (up to the first $150,000 in customer contributions). Any contribution of more than a dollar must be made by separate check, payable to Operation Fuel. The utility company will forward all contributions directly to Operation Fuel, which distributes warmth throughout Connecticut via a statewide network of fuel banks.
Please consider participating in the Add-a-Dollar program, and make this winter a warmer one for someone in need. To participate, complete the Add-a-Dollar Sign-up Form (PDF file)* and fax or mail it to your participating utility company. A dollar will automatically be added to your utility bill each month as an Operation Fuel contribution. (You can ignore the charge and/or have it removed from your bill whenever you choose.)
*Every dollar you contribute is tax-deductible.
