Elderly parents in Henderson need funds for electric bill before 7/1/2013

Requesting: $245

Location: Howell, NJ

My parents live in Henderson, NC, and are in need of 245.00 to pay their Wake electric bill. My dad has lung cancer and has been unable to work since he had surgery 9 months ago. They have been living off of Social Security checks since then, and struggling to keep afloat.

I live in NJ, and my sister and I have been helping them financially for months, but we just can't do it now. I have called Wake Electric and they are unwilling to work with me to make some kind of a payment plan or even to give them a few more days. It is due to be shut off on Monday, July 1 . I called Social Services in Henderson, as well. The Salvation Army and many, many churches. They all seem to be out of funds right now. My parents can also use food. They tried to get food stamps but only qualified for 16.00 worth a month. Hard to believe considering they only have 2 social security checks coming in a month.

On behalf of my family and myself I thank you in advance for any help you can give my mom and dad at this time.
