Lex-Care: Widow needs help to pay propane gas bill

Jennifer Garland, a social worker at the Lexington Senior Center, is working with a client who needs $500 to pay her propane bill. This client's husband passed away six months ago, which resulted in her income being cut in half. She can typically pay for her monthly expenses but needs help filling the propane tank for the winter. She must pay this bill and fill the propane tank by the end of September to be eligible for the lower summer rate.
