Today’s Case of the Week comes from our Hartselle, Alabama Office.
Recently, we had a veteran stop in that had fallen on hard times. Unfortunately, he had fallen behind on his electric bill to the tune of $350.00 and did not know where to turn for help. He had gone to a Huntsville Veteran’s Organization and they sent him to us.
His wife was with him using a borrowed phone and she was endlessly calling various organizations with no luck. They have two daughters (16 and 11) and no power. We have been having lows in the mid to high twenties and we know that it was a monumental struggle for them.
He stated that he had talked to a lot of different organizations and we were the only ones to help thus far. We called the utility company and sent them our max donation and helped them find other organizations in their area that could help.
Our office manager Carol was calling other Veterans organizations in Huntsville and they told her that they sent people to us, Veterans Outreach. With all their problems they still were kind and upbeat. We are so happy we could help!
