In the middle of the night during the dead of winter,
Anna and her 3-month-old infant ran out of heat. She called Capstone Community Action’s emergency
heating assistance hotline for help and we sent a fuel dealer to her home.
When the truck couldn’t make it up the driveway because of the snow, Anna called back in a panic. Our staff called a plow truck, clearing the driveway and delivering fuel before sunrise.
