Kennebunkport Republican Committee Heats Up Town’s Fuel Assistance Fund
Update – as of November 5th, the donation has swelled to over $7,800. Many people contributed to this – the GOP Committee and their friends, families, and acquaintances. Thank you to everyone!
On Friday, October 28, 2022, members of the Kennebunkport Republican Committee presented a check to Alison Kenneway, Director of Public Health, to support the Fuel Assistance Fund. Members of the group donated to the effort, and collected money from friends and neighbors.
“Although this was a local Republican-led effort, we all have friends who are either Democrat, Independent, or have no political affiliation. We wanted
everyone to have the opportunity to support our neighbors in need,” says Allan Evelyn, who spearheaded the effort. “Nobody turned down the request to help us with the fundraising effort, which reflects the true character of our town and our residents.”
The Kennebunkport Fuel Assistance Fund was established several years ago and exists entirely through donations by individuals, organizations and businesses, according to Kenneway.
The Kennebunkport Republican Committee originally hoped to raise $1,500, with the help of Zuke’s Firewood and King’s Port Inn each agreeing to match donations up to $500. But the response was overwhelming, resulting in $6,600 raised.
The Committee wishes to thank all who gave to this effort.
