Laurie Heflin

In 2008, when the cost of heating oil soared to nearly $4 a gallon, Laurie Heflin responded to the need by founding Neighbor to Neighbor, a service that provides emergency funding, heating oil funds, utility assistance, and camp sponsorships for families in need. Since then, under Laurie’s leadership, Neighbor to Neighbor has also stepped up to assist the Madison Community Services Food Pantry when its need increased and to deliver items from the food pantry to homebound individuals. Together with her husband, Jack, Laurie also supports Yale-New Haven Hospital’s Smilow Cancer Hospital. She has served on the board of directors and as secretary of the Deacon John Grave Foundation and on the board of governors of the Madison Beach Club.
