PLYMOUTH – Plymouth American Legion Post 20 is hosting a “Heating for Heroes” fundraiser to help the Veterans Strong Community Center in Bristol establish a fuel fund for veterans.
The fundraiser will be held from 5 to 10 p.m. Dec. 10 at American Legion Post 20 at 245 Main St., Plymouth. The event will be a Hollywood themed night with live music by DJ Chuck Dreger. Visitors are encouraged to come and enjoy a “night on the red carpet.” Food will be provided. There will also be raffles and a cash bar. All proceeds will be donated to the Veteran Fuel Fund at the Veterans Strong Community Center.
Donna Dognin, executive director of the Veterans Strong Community Center, said that the Veterans Fuel Fund is a new fund which the Center will be establishing this winter.
“With fuel prices going up, our specific fuel fund is intended to be a last resort effort,” she said. “Hopefully, it will catch those who are struggling and who don’t qualify for the other programs that are out there.”
Dognin said she is grateful for American Legion Post 20’s efforts to help kick start this fund.
“We love it when we can partner with local American Legions, whether it is those in Bristol or in surrounding communities,” Dognin said.
Dognin encouraged those veterans who are interested in applying for the Veterans Fuel Fund to reach out to the Veterans Strong Community Center.
“We are finalizing all of our eligibility criteria,” she said. “Hopefully, all of that information should be up on our website by the end of the month.”
There is a $10 cover charge to attend the “Heating for Heroes” fundraiser. All tickets will be sold at the door.
