Donor Insight

"I help because I can. I am fortunate enough to be in a position to support others in financial need. I am a firm believer that you don’t have to experience something to understand how it can affect an individual or family. All you have to do is put yourself in their place, and it doesn’t take long.

The need for the type of assistance provided by the Washington Area Fuel Fund continues to grow. The conditions of many elderly individuals who were struggling before the economic downturn appear to be worse. When I see this, I have to respond."
