Jennifer Garland, a social worker with the Lexington Senior Center, is requesting $189.22 to help a client pay his Columbia Gas bill. The client recently lost about $300 in monthly income. His wife passed away five years ago, and he received a monthly payment from her retirement for the past five years.
He has received assistance from family members, but they are unable to help him at this time. Without this assistance, he is in danger of having his gas disconnected. After he pays this bill, he will be able to make ends meet using his Social Security income.
