SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) can be used to supplement your food budget costs. Money saved through SNAP could be used toward your medical costs. SNAP is income-based, but it is your income after shelter and medical expenses are deducted.

Home heating and energy assistance (a.k.a. Fuel Assistance) season runs from November 1st through April 30th and is available for eligible homeowners and renters, including households whose cost of heat is included in the rent (12 month assistance in that case). It pays directly to your primary heating source vendor, and automatically includes electric and telephone bill discounts if you are eligible, saving you money to use for medical or other expenses.

The SHINE Program (Serving the Health Insurance Needs of Everyone) provides free health insurance information, counseling and assistance to all Massachusetts residents with Medicare.

Chichester - It is with great sadness that his family shares the sudden passing of Joseph P. Levitt on November 26, 2021. A resident of Chichester, NH, Joe was returning from his first hunting trip of the season, when he was involved in a tragic car accident on an icy road in New Hampshire. He would have been 39 years old on December 11. He was born in Framingham, MA, to Patricia Welch Levitt and Morris R. Levitt. Joe is survived by his beloved wife, Leah Santangelo; his brothers Jonathan Levitt (Amy Kohn) and David Levitt (Donna Simon); his sister Meagan Levitt (Arthur Hernandez); and his beloved cousins Maggie Reagan (Jason), Andrew Ross, Adrianna Ross, and Nickolas Ross. Additionally, Joe is survived by his aunts and uncles Charlotte and Henry Lapidus, Jane Welch, Kathy and Kelly Salmon, Mary Welch-Donovan; as well as his in-laws, Charles and JoAgnes Santangelo, and loving cousins and nieces. Joe graduated from Governor's Academy in Byfield, MA. His wanderlust took him to Tulane University where he officially majored in geology and unofficially in NOLA culture. He received a B.S. in Geology and Environmental Geoscience (cum laude) from Tulane University, and studied at the University of Accra, Ghana. Joe earned a master's degree in Science Education from Montana State University. His thesis was based on an outdoor lab he designed at Governor's Academy. Recently Joe launched his own online business. He had worked as a water scientist for the U.S. Geological Survey in Pembroke, NH, and was proud of his scientific work. Prior to that, he worked for years for Clean Harbors; he cleaned up oil spills in waterways, including the San Francisco Bay and the Mississippi River in New Orleans. He was once dispatched to Iowa on the shores of the flooded Mississippi River to corral 35,000 drowned pigs, using oil spill boom technology. He also taught Math and Chemistry at Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, ME. Joe will be remembered by his family for his love of the outdoors, for his ability to make everyone laugh, and for his love and care of family members. Joe's fully decorated Christmas tree tattoo will also be remembered as a symbol of his Santa-like persona, giving nature, and love and acceptance of all those lucky enough to share in his life. Joe Levitt was himself a force of the nature that he both studied, worked, and played in. A Celebration of Joe's Life will be held on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Still Oaks Funeral & Memorial Home, 1217 Suncook Valley Highway, Epsom, NH.

Kingston - Donna M. (Simard) McDonald, 77, a lifelong resident of Kingston, for the last 58 years, passed away peacefully after a long fight with MS at Rockingham County Nursing Home under the guidance of hospice in Brentwood, NH. Born in Haverhill, MA, the daughter of the late Francis A. and Caroline Simard, she attended the Haverhill Catholic Schools and graduated from St. James High School, Class of 1962. She was first employed at AT&T in North Andover and would later dedicate her life to her children and husband rather than work. She became employed at the local Plain Fare Restaurant in Kingston as a waitress once her children were all in school. Her final employment would be with EAD in Dover, NH in which she worked beside her husband until MS forced her to accept disability and retire. Donna was married to her high school sweetheart and love of her life in which they shared their life dedicated to their children and enjoying family fun and adventures. Donna spent much time with her family during the summers and winters early on at family camps on Newfoundland Lake in Bristol, NH and Lake Winnie in Alton Bay, NH. She and Bernie would then become seasonal residents of Saco River Campground in North Conway, NH, where they spent 26 years and then made the transition to The Bluffs at Danforth Bay in Freedom, NH. Camping was such a passion of hers to be outside and be with family and friends. We will all remember her as the Crocheting Queen!! I believe every family member and many friends have enjoyed their own personal afghan compliments of Donna. She loved to crochet for her family and friends. We have been reminded by her sister, that Donna loved to dance especially with her sisters and her husband. She loved to roller skate in her teens at Skateland in Bradford, MA. Donna also enjoyed sitting for hours and watching candlepin bowling and professional golf. In addition to her loving husband, Bernard A McDonald, who was by her side every day until she completed her journey here with us, she is survived by her three children, Jody and her husband Jay M. Palermo, Jeff McDonald and his fianc&eacute;, Sheryl Wheeler, and Julie and her husband Shon Stevens. She was fortunate to watch her beloved six grandchildren grow to become adults. They are Samantha and her husband Joshua Montgomery and Sydney Palermo and her partner Jared Hanscomb, Ryan and Jacob McDonald, and Brandon Bolduc and his wife Alie and Brooke Bolduc. And the absolute love of her life's would be her three great-grandchildren, Gabriella Montgomery and Brodee and Hadley Bolduc. She leaves two sisters, Irene MacAvoy and her husband, Alan of Haverhill, MA and Pat Goodrich of Haverhill, MA, her brother in-law, Vincent Kissel of Haverhill, MA and also her brother-in-law, Robert McDonald and his wife Dawn, of East Kingston, NH, who helped both Bernie and Donna through-out this journey. She was predeceased by her sister, Joyce Kissel, brother in-law Paul Goodrich and brother in-law William McDonald and her in-laws, William and Dorothy McDonald. She also leaves many nieces and nephews including great-nieces and great-nephews in which she was close with and loved. There will be no services but family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life in honor of Donna on December 12, 2021 at Gametime Lanes and Entertainment, 84 Haverhill Rd., Amesbury, MA. From 12 to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Donna's memory to the MS Society. Assistance with arrangements is by Direct Cremation of the Seacoast, Hampton, NH.

Newburyport - The children of Sylvia Anna Lolli are heartbroken as they share the news that their extraordinary mother passed away on November 17. Sylvia's brilliance shone throughout her life through the many roles that she filled - daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, cousin, friend, encourager, and confidant. Her genuine, unscripted, fierce, joyful presence will be deeply missed by those who loved her. We take solace in knowing that her light shines on through the kind acts and thoughtful wisdom she shared throughout her life. Sylvia was born on November 12, 1931, in Leominster, MA to parents Ralph Lolli, Sr. and Filomena "Fannie" (DeFelice) Lolli. She grew up on Lancaster Street in Leominster, where she enjoyed sneaking into the basement pantry with her cousins to take jars of olives and playing hide and seek in the cemetery. She graduated from Leominster High School in 1949 and attended Burbank Hospital School of Nursing where she graduated as a registered nurse. She lived and worked in many places after her graduation, including Fort Belvoir, VA, Upstate New York, Hampton Beach, NH, and Newburyport, MA. No matter where she was, she created a loving home for her family, filled with warmth, faith, and song. Sylvia returned to Leominster in 1965, where she raised her six children. She provided nursing care for many during her night shifts at Mt. Elam and Fairlawn nursing homes, but was probably best known for always giving a warm welcome to whomever came through the front door of her home. If you were lucky enough to have sat at her kitchen table, you know that she was a gracious hostess who always had a cup of coffee ready to pour and could whip up an impromptu meal for a crowd. She hosted lively conversations, Bible studies and spirited debates. Sylvia brought her optimistic outlook, quick wit and beautiful smile to every situation. She had a discerning eye for style, embracing open-concept living before it was in vogue (aka taking a sledge hammer to walls), repainting a piece of furniture, or selecting just the right pair of shoes or earrings. She retired to Marco Island, FL, where she lived for several years until she was drawn back to the New England coast and Newburyport, where she enjoyed Atlantic Ocean breezes and spoiling her adoring grandchildren. Nothing gave her more joy than surprising them with a card with a five-dollar bill in the mail or stashing a special treat in a drawer for them to find at their next visit. Sylvia was easy to love and was loved by many. She is survived by her son, Michael Hannigan and wife, Dawn, of Leominster; her daughters, Sheila Markham and husband, Jerry, of Naples, FL; Michelle Erickson and husband, Drew, of Newbury; Colleen Hannigan of Newburyport; Leslie Hannigan of Newburyport; Kelly Hoppe and husband, Ryan, and grandchildren, Christopher and Marielle, all of Hingham. She is also survived by her sister, Virginia Jones of Raleigh, NC, and her brothers, Ralph Lolli, Jr. of Leominster, Ray (Nancy) Lolli of Pembroke Pines, FL, Dennis (Diane) Lolli of Orlando, FL, as well as many nieces, nephews, grand and great-grand nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, her sister and brother-in-law, Marion and Bill Corkran; her sister-in-law, Lorraine Lolli; and her brother-in-law, Russ Jones. A private service will be held for immediate family members. The Twomey, LeBlanc & Conte Funeral Home, 193 High Street, Newburyport, MA is directing arrangements. In lieu of flowers, catch up with a friend over coffee, call or send a note to someone at a distance, or say a prayer for someone you love.
