Grandmother with custody of granddaughter needed rent assistance – June 21, 2016
An Expanding the Table volunteer, while serving dinner one night, met an elderly woman who lives in a trailer park in Summerville who has custody of her middle school age granddaughter. She indicated to him that she is employed but struggles to make ends meet. She recently lost some time at work and has been struggling to make all her payments. She was making partial payments on her lot rent and promised the property manager that she would make up payments when she got her tax refund. According to the property manager she did so as promised. Change for a Dollar also checked with her and confirmed she is up to date on utility bills etc. but was still a little short on the arrears on the lot rent for her trailer. Change for a Dollar assisted her with paying the remaining arrears on the lot rent bringing her current.
