Community Success Stories Utility Assistance

“An elderly lady came into the office with tears in her eyes. She was nervous and embarrassed about asking for help. She said her electric was about to be terminated and she didn’t know what to do. She said she called the electric company and asked if they would wait until she got her check. They told her no the bill had to be paid. I told her everything I needed to do an application. She said she had everything in her vehicle. She went and brought all the paperwork to me. I did the application process, pledged the money and assured her we had taken care of the bill. Again, if it wasn’t for the United Way’s funding, The Salvation Army couldn’t help those in need in Marshall County.”
