Woodstock Area Relief Fund can help area residents in need

Asking for help isn’t easy. But these times are unlike anything our community has ever seen. That’s why the Woodstock Area Relief Fund (WARF) has made getting money for household necessities as simple as possible.

The Woodstock Community has a long history of coming together during tough times. And that’s what WARF is about: neighbors helping neighbors. “So even if you’ve never asked for help before, you can feel comfortable reaching out to us,” WARF stated.

More than 160 neighbors and 50 friends from other states have contributed over $215,000 so far to help those in the Windsor Central Supervisory Union. All the money will go toward grants of up to $1,000 for those needing help with rent, groceries, and other household expenses. Thus far, WARF has assisted over 70 families.

For those in need, simply fill out a form at Then a WARF volunteer will verify your information and point you toward resources that may be helpful. WARF has received almost 100 applications for assistance from Barnard, Bridgewater, Killington, Pomfret, Plymouth, Reading, and Woodstock and has funds to help many more.
