A NOTE FROM THE STOUGHTON HOUSING AUTHORITY
The Stoughton Housing Authority is happy to announce that every resident of the Capen Street fire received a monetary donation this week from the town of Stoughton. We would especially like to thank the Lions Club and Steven Prone for their generosity. We would also like to recognize Bob’s Famous Foodmart for holding a raffle and supplying the prize with all proceeds benefiting the residents of Capen Street. We cannot thank the community enough for their support of the residents of Capen Street and would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
"On behalf of the Stoughton Housing Authority (SHA), we want to thank everyone who has posted online to generously offer furniture to our displaced Rose Forte residents. We are happy to report that since the July 18th fire we have been able to assist everyone who requested our help obtaining replacement furnishings. Many Stoughton residents contacted us and the Council on Aging with donations of furniture, household appliances, and clothing. We assisted our residents by picking up donated furniture and moving it to their new locations or storage units. The phenomenal donation made by Bob’s Discount Furniture of a $500 gift card to every affected household greatly assisted in meeting this need......
