This week, our “Case of the Week” comes from our office in Hartselle, Alabama, written by Mike Johnson, our EC at that office.
This week we had a female veteran come to our office in despair, she had fallen behind on her utility bill. She had already received a partial bill payment from Veterans Outreach, however, the utility company told her that they would cut her utilities off if she did not pay the full amount on this day.
With a heat index of 103, this was a no-brainer for this office, we paid the extra money. The sad thing about this story is that the amount that the lady needed was equal to the amount that many of us spend for a night out on the town, 200 dollars can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
We are so happy with could provide her with the means to help keep her electric on and her home cool in this Alabama July heat!
