Fuel Fund Board President Marnell Allan Cooper, Attorney at Law with Palmer Cooper, LLC, comments, “We are very pleased to be partnering with the extraordinary energies and talent of the Moscow Ballet to help bring energy assistance and warmth to Maryland families this winter. The Great Russian Nutcracker has delighted audiences for many years. This holiday season our partnership means the audiences can be delighted AND caring. Five dollars per ticket will bring welcome relief to many people – of which over half are children!”
The Fuel Fund of Maryland provides life-saving resources to vulnerable Maryland families for heat and home utility needs. Since 1981, the Fund has assisted seniors and people with disabilities existing on fixed incomes, families and individuals earning minimum wage, and people weathering hardships like job losses or medical emergencies - over half the people served by The Fund are children. Watt Watchers – the newest Fuel Fund program - is the “How To” energy conservation and financial education initiative that teaches families to lower energy costs so that class participants recognize immediate savings on utility bills. The Fuel Fund works toward a day when all Marylanders will have adequate resources to make home energy affordable. An investment in the Fuel Fund of Maryland is an Investment in Families’ Futures. www.fuelfundmaryland.org
