I would like to take a moment to thank all of the merchants and individuals who decorated trees on Main Street to benefit the Johnson County Emergency Heating Assistance for Seniors Fund. While the trees were not auctioned off because they become somewhat battered over time, the Heating Fund collected donations totaling $600 because of this generous and festive activity. The trees added a lot of festivity to Main Street for the Christmas season, adding to the ambiance of our town. I would also like to extend a special thanks to all who donated; if you made a donation and need a tax receipt, please contact me at the address below.
Huge thanks are due to everyone who helps keep the Heating fund operating. We would not be able to help anyone if it was not due to the generosity of our community in continued support and donations. We continue to receive donations from individuals, businesses and churches around Johnson County; it is a reminder that this is such a special place full of special people who make the community great. We have already helped 18 seniors this year who would otherwise have been without heat, and we expect many more before the winter is over. If anyone would like to make a direct donation, you can send your contribution to the Johnson County Emergency Heating Assistance for Seniors Fund, care of Gwen Bell, P.O. Box 208, Mountain City, TN 37683.
If you are a low income senior citizen with an emergency situation which leaves you without heat this winter and would like to be considered for assistance, please contact us and we will get you an application and point you in the right direction.
Gwen Bell, President
Johnson County Emergency Heating Assistance for Seniors Fund
