LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Catholic Charities’ ‘Eat for Heat’ spaghetti dinner will do more than fill empty bellies on Feb. 20.
The 11th Annual Eat for Heat will raise much needed funds for Livingston County residents who need a hand with paying heating bills this year and may not be able to receive county assistance through the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP).
“Lots of people fall through the cracks as they are ineligible for county assistance like HEAP,” said Tammy Hall with Catholic Charities’ Help Works program. “Sometimes there is a need before the HEAP application window opens or after it closes.”
Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. A family of four can get a ticket for $50.
Tickets are available online here or at the Catholic Charities office at 34 East State Street in Mount Morris, or by calling Catholic Charities at (585) 658-4466.
Attendees will gather from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 20 at Camp Stella Maris in Livonia to enjoy the donated food, courtesy of Barilla in Avon and C and R Foodservice in Mount Morris. All proceeds will go into Catholic Charities’ fund to help local people with heating bills over the winter.
“Some people are in a pinch and just need a temporary boost. We can provide that,” said Hall. “We want people to know that we are an option.”
Even if folks are unable to attend they are still encouraged to donate to support the program online here or by calling (585) 658-4466.
