INDIANAPOLIS — The United Way of Central Indiana is kicking off its Winter Assistance Fund to assist individuals and families who do not qualify for the state's low-income energy assistance program for utility bill assistance during the winter months.

"Access to basic needs and the well-being of our community's individuals and their families remains a top priority for United Way," Mary Jones, community impact director at United Way, said in a statement.
