A major cold snap is headed our way.
But what resources are available for those who lack heating?
One way is through the Centre County Fuel Bank, run by the non profit Interfaith Human Services.
This is a privately run program that helps get folks heating oil and other resources for heating their homes.
Faith Ryan the director of Adult Services for Centre County tells us the county government will give 100 thousand dollars to boost the program.
She says the money comes from funds given to the county by the Commonwealth and the US Treasury.
“So really, our goal is, with the anticipation of there being a growing need for emergency heating, we wanted to make an arrangement with Interfaith Human Services to be able to provide
services from our fund and from our program, if appropriate.”
There is also the Out Of The Cold Program that gives shelter and other services to those who need help.
