Cornerstone Bank donates $2,500 to Hearts for Heat

Providing heating assistance for Leicester residents

Cornerstone Bank has donated $2,500 to the Leicester chapter of Hearts for Heat, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing winter heating fuel to families in need.

“With both inflation and fuel prices on the rise, we know this year will pose greater financial challenges to many residents when it comes to heating their homes,” said Cornerstone Bank CEO Todd Tallman. “We are proud to support this grassroots organization that has been helping families in Worcester County stay warm during the winter for the past 15 years.”

Hearts for Heat has chapters in Leicester, North Brookfield, Princeton, Spencer, and other Worcester County towns. It was started in 2007 by Cindy Shea, a local social worker with a teaching background and a passion for helping those in need.
