Two requests for help to pay electric bills

November 14, 2012 

Two requests for assistance to pay electric bills were submitted by Beth Myers, a case manager at Mary Todd Elementary Family Resource Center.

A single mother of two needs $109.36 to pay her electric bill. Myers is working with her to obtain child care and reliable transportation so she can consistently work at her job with the Fayette County Public Schools system.

Her income is from her earnings, food stamps and child support, which is sporadic. Once the problems are solved she will be able to manage.

Disabled woman can't pay electric bill

A disabled woman needs $181.42 to pay her past-due electric bill. The woman is a grandparent helping to raise several grandchildren. Her other utility charges were higher than usual and she fell behind on the electric bill. Once that bill is taken care of, she will be able to manage.

Her income is from her Social Security disability benefits and food stamps.
