Lex-Care: Couple need $500 to pay electric bill

Danielle Gilchrist, with the Community Action Council, is requesting $500 to help a client pay his electric bill. The husband and wife are living on Social Security only and received a higher-than-expected bill in February. The husband has severe asthma and uses an oxygen tank and breathing machine, both of which are powered by electricity. They have never requested financial assistance before and believe they can make ends meet after this bill is paid.
