Welcome to the Charlton Chapter of the REAS Foundation
Thank you! On behalf of the Charlton REAS Foundation Board of Directors, we would like to extend our gratitude for the wonderful community response at our Taste of the Towns event that was held on January 25, 2014. We’d like to thank all those guests who attended our event and also those who purchased our Lottery Calendars. We are happy to announce that the Charlton REAS Foundation generated over $12,752.00 with our Taste of the Towns fundraiser and Lottery Calendar sales. In addition to that, we have received generous donations from Millennium Power of $1,000, Southbridge Savings Bank of $3,000 and Incom of $1,500, bringing our total over $18,000.00 to benefit the energy needs of senior citizens in Charlton. This is a phenomenal accomplishment and speaks to the abundant
generosity of our community.

The REAS Foundation is the Residential Energy Assistance for Seniors Foundation, and is built upon the belief that the greatness of a community is ultimately judged not so much by the beauty or magnificence of its structures, but rather, by its compassion, contributions, and care for its most vulnerable members. REAS Foundation Charlton Chapter is a 501(c)3 organization and our service area is exclusive to the Town of Charlton.
We are fortunate to live in the greatest country in the world, greatly due to the sweat and toils of our seniors, whose contributions and sacrifices are innumerable. All too many of our seniors, who have dedicated so much to our community, now find themselves in difficult and sometimes desperate economic times.
Rising energy costs, which in turn drive the costs of many associated items, coupled with fixed incomes, have placed many of our seniors in difficult and dangerous predicaments. Their incomes are now fast outpaced by escalating energy prices. Choices between fuel, food, and prescriptions medications are becoming all too common for many of our seniors.
We at the REAS Foundation are committed to doing everything possible to assist qualifying seniors with their energy costs via grants paid directly to their utility providers, heating and cooling contractors and vendors, and other direct providers of heating and cooling products and services. We are dedicated to ensuring that those who have laid the foundation for this great community are able to find a degree of comfort in their twilight years.
