Fuel Assistance Program

From last winter, many remember what some called the “pain in Maine” with the painfully cold temperatures that seemed like winter would never end. Those who were affected most were those whose income could not keep up with the dropping cold temps and rising costs of fuel oil. COS partners with the town offices of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Arundel in supplying emergency fuel for those in need. We provide up to 100 gallons of emergency fuel oil to get those “in the cold” the necessary fuel to stay warm.
