Grandparents need rent help

Lydia Jacobs, with the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living, is requesting assistance for a couple who need $475 to pay their rent. The couple have recently taken custody of their two grandchildren, ages 5 and 7. They live on Social Security and a pension. They are working with other agencies to get furniture and supplies for the kids, but need this one-time help with the rent to get through the month.
