Utility Bills Support

Illuminating Hope: Crescent Food Bank’s Winter Utility Support.

In the face of escalating utility costs and the relentless challenges of making ends meet, Crescent Food Bank remained steadfast in our commitment to supporting the most vulnerable families within our community. Acknowledging the profound burden borne by families reliant on prepayment meters for their utility bills, we initiated a dedicated Utility Bill Support Programme aimed at offering assistance throughout the winter months.

The relentless surge in the cost of living has placed immense strain on families, particularly those already grappling with financial hardship. We understand that utility bills aren’t merely expenses; they’re fundamental necessities for maintaining warmth, light, and comfort within the home, especially during the harsh winter season.

In collaboration with Bolton’s Fund and Bolton CVS, we endeavoured to provide relief to qualifying families by offering support with their utility bills. Through our joint efforts, we sought to alleviate the financial strain and ensure that families could concentrate on staying warm and well during the winter chill.

To simplify the application process, we provided families with a user-friendly online form accessible via https://rb.gy/two6vd or by scanning the QR code displayed on our promotional materials. This approach facilitated easy submission of applications from the comfort of their homes, with the deadline for submissions set for 18 February 2024.

The response to our Winter Utility Support Programme was nothing short of overwhelming, with families across our community reaching out for assistance. Witnessing firsthand the impact of our efforts, we saw families receive the much-needed support to keep their homes warm and well-lit throughout the winter season.

As we reflect on the conclusion of this initiative, we’re reminded of the paramount importance of community support during times of need. None of this would have been possible without the unwavering dedication of our team, the steadfast support of our partners, and the boundless generosity of our donors.

Over the course of the winter, we’re proud to announce that our efforts have made a tangible difference in the lives of 44 families. Each family supported represents a beacon of hope, illuminating homes and hearts amidst the darkest of times.

While this particular programme has drawn to a close, our commitment to serving our community remains resolute. We’ll continue to explore innovative avenues to support families facing financial hardship and champion their needs.

To everyone who contributed to this endeavour, thank you. Your generosity has kindled warmth and hope in the hearts of countless families, illuminating the path to a brighter future for all.
