This charitable service provides one free emergency delivery to local families and seniors that are struggling to pay their heating oil bills during the coldest months. Our Oil Bank is funded by grant money and member donations.
Who is eligible to apply for an emergency oil bank delivery?
If one or both of the following applies to you, you may request an emergency oil bank delivery:
- Boston fuel assistance clients of ABCD if we have grant funding available (if you are not on fuel assistance and cannot afford oil, call ABCD at 617-357-6012).
- Green Energy Consumers members who are on fuel assistance with any Community Action Program agency or have an extraordinary circumstance that makes paying for heating oil difficult.
How can I request an Oil Bank delivery?
The Oil Bank is only open during the coldest months, usually January and February, but may open as early as December. If you need assistance filling your oil tank, call Green Energy Consumers at 800‑287‑3950 x4 and request an Oil Bank delivery. We have dedicated staff that will handle your request promptly and help determine if you are eligible for an emergency oil bank delivery.
I’d like to donate to the Oil Bank.
We greatly appreciate any donation to the Oil Bank. It helps hundreds of community members stay warm during the harsh New England winters.
