TOPSHAM — A link on the town website will allow online donations to those in need of heating or other assistance.

People can use their credit card to donate to either the Topsham Heating Assistance Program, or a separate fund which Linda Dumont, the town’s general assistance coordinator, can use to help people with items other than fuel.

Donations to the cause have been as much as $5,000, given anonymously last year, Town Manager Cornell Knight said on Tuesday.

A fundraising dinner, to benefit the heating fund, will be held at the town’s Grange hall on Pleasant Street from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27. Admission is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children.

Knight said the link would be posted this week, likely to the General Assistance section of, after the Board of Selectmen approved the action last week.

Contact Dumont at 725-1725 or [email protected] for more information.
