One case was submitted to Lex-Care last week requesting money to pay an electric bill.
Felisha Holloway, a social worker at Community Action Council, is assisting a woman who needs $624.67 to pay a past-due electric bill.
The woman, whose daughter and two small grandchildren live with her, had to move when the house they rented was foreclosed on. She has been unable to work since 1995. Once the bill is paid and the service is connected, the family will be able to manage on the grandmother's disability benefits and food stamps. The daughter, who just graduated from college, is looking for employment.
