The Good Samaritan Association helps people in need with paying their utility bills and rent. While the direct amount of cash assistance that someone can receive is limited as the organization can't usually pay much more than $40 to $100 in each case, the fact is this money has helped hundreds of people pay a late bill, or keep their service from being shut off. However, there are a lot of cases and there is a tremendous need for help, and the numbers keep growing.
While the director of the Good Samaritan organization, Cathy Miller, has said that they still have some of the government money to disburse, they need more money and funds to cover the growing need.
The good news is that for once, the food pantry at Good Samaritan Association isn't in dire need of replenishment, but the coffers that are distributing cash grants for rent and energy bills do need more money. Call the Shelbyville Tennessee center at (931) 684-8160.
