As everyone bustles around to finish shopping in anticipation for Christmas, there are some that aren't asking for a tablet or an iphone, they are simply wishing that they could wake up warm on Christmas morning.
I know a family who has had a very rough year. From losing their car to living without electricity for about 3-4 months now, I have never seen them without a smile on their face. When they had the means, they were always willing to help those in need. Now they are the ones who need help.
An old electric bill was attached to their current bill and they are unable to receive state assistance. I have helped as much as I can by calling around, contacting the electric provider, and looking for agencies that may be willing to help, only to reach dead ends.
These people have not asked for help from anyone, but it kills me to be unable to help. If you need more information on how to help, including the account number/electric provider to make a direct payment, or just want to know more about their story. Please feel free to contact me.
Merry Christmas and thanks for reading.
