Heating Assistance for Vets
Matching Grants from Grand Lodge of Minnesota/MMC Warms Homes & Hearts
The Masonic Grand Lodge of Minnesota together with Minnesota Masonic Charities presented a $40,000 check to Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MAC-V) to assist with heating costs for veterans during this harsh winter.
"Most people filled their propane tanks in the Fall, thinking it would last until Spring," said Kathleen A. Vitalis, President/CEO of MAC-V. "At the time, the price per gallon was something like $2. Currently, the price per gallon is $4.50 and we are just seeing prices at over $6/gallon."
The need for statewide energy assistance for disabled veterans is at an all-time high. "The difference this will make will be huge," said Vitalis.
