As the leaves fall and the cooler weather sets in, preparing for winter moves up on our “to do” lists. Many of us prepare by giving our snow blowers a tune up, putting away our summer wardrobe and get the sweaters & vests out of storage, maybe installing a snow fence.
How many of us are tasked with having to prepare financially for winter? Maybe not you, but someone you know could be struggling with having to decide whether to pay their heating bill or buy groceries. Many of our parents & grandparents are going without crucial medication in order to pay their heating bill.
If you or someone you know is struggling to make ends meet in the winter, please know that there is help. The Wisconsin Home Energy Assistance Program or WHEAP is available and they are now taking applications for the 2018/2019 heating season.
