Stephen King Raises Funds to Help Pay Heating Costs in Maine

Stephen King announced last month that his foundation would match up to $70,000 if the listeners of the 3 Bangor area radio stations he owns would match it, making the total donation $140,000.

This fundraising effort exceeded his expectations when an anonymous Californian offered to donate an additional $50,000 if King would match that. King, being a Mainer himself, agreed to the terms, making the total donation $240,000.

This effort apparently came about due to the federal government’s announcement that it would only be contributing $23 Million to heating oil assistance programs, rather than the $55.6 Million that it contributed last winter.
