We read so much bad news that I ran across this article and thought it was such a giving thing for he and his wife to do.
Thank you to GalleyCat for this article:
Novelist Stephen King hopes to raise up to $140,000 to help low income residents heat their homes this year. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has reduced Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funds in Maine from $55.6 million last year to $23 million this year, a dramatic decrease for families struggling to heat their homes.
Hereâ€™s more from the novelist: â€œâ€œWeâ€™ll match up to $70,000 of the amount raised â€¦ This economy is terrible and Tabitha and I both worry so much about Bangor because it truly is a working-class town and we are always looking for ways to help, and right now this is a great need.â€
If you want to donate to the campaign, you can call (207) 990-2800 to donate by credit card through Kingâ€™s radio stations. Or you can mail (or deliver) checks to Help Keep ME Warm ZONE Radio, 861 Broadway, Bangor 04401.
