Sisters living together - 7/20/14

A teenager and her older sister live together. Both girls have been abused by family members so there is no family support what-so-ever. Older sister has many medical problems and was on disability but her disability has expired (she is in the process of disputing this). They live with a roommate who also has medical issues, but is employed. Teenager has been working 40 hours a week and going to school. Teenager’s and Room-mate’s income is not enough to cover all the medical bills and living expenses. Change for a Dollar was able to give them $100 in grocery gift cards and $100 in gas gift cards (Older sister’s doctor is in Mt. Pleasant and they didn’t have enough gas to get there and back).  Also, due to the loss of income, they got behind on their electricity bill. Change for a Dollar paid $250 towards their electricity bill.


Amount: $200 in gift cards & $250 towards Electric Bill
