LO — As the mercury rises, so do utility bills. A local service agency is offering assistance to those who are disadvantaged in the area.

Community SEEDS and Community Services, Inc. will have an open enrollment June 22 for electricity bill assistance. The event is scheduled form 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 22 at the Community SEEDS campus, located at 602 College Street in Lone Oak.

Those seeking assistance must provide: Photo identification, social security cards for everyone in the household, check stubs, a Texas Workforce registration print-out, medical proof of being unable to work, and an original electric bill that shows a detailed account of one month’s usage and the due date. The bill must be in the applicant’s name.

Community SEEDS is a 501(c)3 faith-based resource center founded in late 2009. The organization operates as a clearing house for area churches to serve the economically disadvantaged, poor and underserved people in the area with emergency assistance and programs to encourage them to become self-sufficient.
