Town tree lighting to benefit Neighbor fund

The town of Brookline is encouraging people attending the town's tree lighting to bring holiday cheer in the form of gift cards to benefit the town's Neighbor Helping Neighbor fund.

Town Administrator Tad Putney said residents should bring gift cards or cash donations to the event, planned for Dec. 4 at 4:30 at Town Hall, to boost the effort to provide holiday smiles to town residents who may need a helping hand.

The fund, set up several years ago through work by the town's fire department, is used for residents who may not fit the town's guidelines for those seeking welfare assistance through Town Hall. Currently under the umbrella of the trustees of the welfare trust fund, the Neighbor to Neighbor fund balance is currently about $7,000, according to town manager Tad Putney.

"It's a great way for residents to help their fellow residents in need," said

The meetings will address four technologies: geothermal, air source heat pumps, wood pellet systems and PV solar electric systems. The committee has invited subject matter experts in each of these technologies as well as residents who currently have these systems in their homes to share their experiences.
