Along with 22 other Massachusetts energy companies, Rowley Municipal Lighting Plant is now a sponsor of the Massachusetts Good Neighbor Energy Fund (GNEF).

Administered by The Salvation Army, the fund brings assistance to any Massachusetts resident who – due to temporary financial difficulty – cannot meet a month’s energy expense and is not eligible for state or federal energy assistance, but falls within the income guidelines as established by the GNEF.

Last year the Massachusetts GNEF helped more than 2,725 families pay an electric, gas or oil bill. The fund’s goal for 2007-08 is $600,000 and The Salvation Army is already beginning to see a rise in the number of phone calls from families in need.

We hope you’ll consider giving the “Gift of Warmth” by sending a contribution in the enclosed green donation envelope that will be mailed with electric bills this February. Extra envelopes will remain available at the Light Department office. Your tax deductible donation, made payable to the “Good Neighbor Energy Fund,” goes straight to the Fund, and The Salvation Army sees that your contribution helps a family in need of energy assistance.

For more information about donating, call RMLP at 978-948-3992 or the Salvation Army at 800-334-3047. You may also visit
