Lex-Care: Widow needs help to pay Columbia Gas bill

Jennifer Newton, a Lex-Care board member, has requested financial assistance of $486 for a client who needs to pay her Columbia Gas bill. The client's husband passed away recently, and she is having financial difficulties due to the loss of his income.

She will be able to pay her bills on her income after the school year starts and she returns to work. She will work with social workers to stay up-to-date on her bills in the future.
