WARF thanks donors, volunteers, and applicants

Dear Editor,

When Woodstock Area Relief Fund Covid-19 (WARF) was formed the last spring, we never imagined this type of extended hardship. So we’re grateful for several recent generous donations that mean funds are still available.

WARF provides grants of up to $1,000 to residents of the Windsor County Supervisory Union.

We’re aware that many in the community now in financial need have never asked for help before. Please know that your application will be completely confidential. If you were living on savings that are now running out or your credit card debt is mounting, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

We’d also like to thank our wonderful caseworkers who have worked tirelessly to help those still struggling from the effects of the pandemic. Their efforts have had a profound effect.

One recipient wrote: “I was on week four without any income, then I heard about WARF… One thousand dollars to help with buying firewood, medical bills, and some money for groceries. It was the first time I felt like someone really cared, and it was going to be ‘OK.’”

The WARF Covid-19 Team: Jill Davies, Sally Miller, Barry Milstone
