The Charlton REAS Foundation, Inc. is a local 501c3 non-profit organization established by volunteers who care about the health and well-being of the senior population. Many senior citizens are on fixed incomes and with the fluctuating costs of heating oil, prescription medications, health insurance, food, and daily necessities choices can become very difficult. Proceeds from this event will supply qualifying senior citizens of Charlton with energy assistance.
Thanks to your contributions in 2019 the Charlton REAS Foundation awarded 45 seniors with assistance for a total of $17,400. This fundraiser along with the lottery calendar is the REAS Foundation’s most important event. We would not be able to give this assistance without your attendance, monetary donations, in-kind donations and volunteer time.
The Taste of the Towns event is a great way for our community to have a fun, inexpensive night out and to help our neighbors at the same time.
