Change for a Dollar received a phone call from an apartment manager in Summerville regarding one of their tenants. The man who rented the apartment was disabled but worked a little to supplement his disability income. He had gotten behind on his electric bill and was scheduled to be disconnected but planned to pay the bill when he got his pay check. Because of the holidays, there was a delay in getting his check and getting it cashed which prevented him from paying the bill in time. That resulted in the electric being shut off. He would have the money to get the electric back on but the SCE&G offices were closed for the holiday and he needed some assistance for the short term with the forecast frigid temperatures. The apartment manager asked if we could assist in some way. Since he had no electric the only option was for a kerosene heater which was provided to supply heat until he could arrange for the electric to be reinstated.
