This major financial contribution will go toward assisting local residents with home heating costs. WCAC is a Worcester-based agency for central Massachusetts, dedicated to helping people move toward economic self-sufficiency through programs, partnerships, and advocacy. This donation will support the agency’s Emergency Fuel Assistance Fund. Every year, this fund provides critical support to clients who are most vulnerable to high home heating costs and whose needs often extend beyond what they receive in federal assistance. “WCAC is a vital organization that helps people gain economic self-sufficiency,” stated Cornerstone Bank Chairman & CEO K. Michael Robbins. “We’re proud to support their mission and the many programs they provide to the community and its residents.” “We are pleased to contribute to such a worthwhile agency that provides critical support to many local individuals and families,” added Bank President & Treasurer Todd M. Tallman. “We are committed to helping our neighbors stay warm during the winter season.” The Worcester Community Action Council is the federally-designated community action council agency for central Massachusetts. Each year, they assist over 75,000 people living in Worcester and surrounding towns through a variety of economic self-sufficiency and emergency programs.
