Fuel Assistance Program

Our neighbors here in Maine often deal with the painfully cold temperatures in winter that sometimes seem to never end. The people this impacts most are those whose income just doesn’t keep up with the dropping cold temps and rising costs of fuel. COS partners with the town offices of Arundel, Kennebunk, and Kennebunkport 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.
