Need #5400 | Electric Bill for Elderly Woman

$731

GOAL
Filled!

We are working with the Department of Social Services to help an elderly woman pay off a large past due electric bill. This woman co-signed on a loan for her grandchild, who did not make any payments. In order to preserve her credit, she started paying off the loan, but did not have enough for her electric bill, which has been accumulating through the pandemic shut-off moratorium. She currently owes $731 in back payments, putting her at risk of being shutoff now that the moratorium has ended. We would like to pay off her debt and help dig her out of this hole she is in through no fault of her own. If you would like to contribute toward this need, please click the link below to donate.
