T and F are an elderly couple in the late 80s who have been married for 68 years. They are both struggling with health issues. They live with their adult son and his son, and it is suspected that the son’s mishandling of the finances is why the bills are not being paid. Nevertheless, T and F’s electric was going to be disconnected if their overdue bill was not paid. We were blessed to partner with the Real Life Center to take care of that bill for them.

T and D are a local couple. They have 3 young children; 2 boys and a girl all under the age of 16. One of the children is autistic and is on disability. T and D are both out of work, but have been diligently looking for new jobs. They have done a great job keeping their household expenses down during this time, eliminating all extras except basic cable so that the kids can have internet access for homework. They were due to have their electric disconnected this week if they did not pay their overdue bill. We were blessed to partner with the Real Life Center to take care of that bill for them.

T is a single Mom of 3 young daughters. There is no father in the picture and she does not receive child support. One of the girls has significant medical issues that has required several trips back and forth to Eggleston, so a lot of the budget has been going to gas. T is employed but has had decreased hours at work because of the time she has had to take off to care for her daughter. As a result, she has fallen behind on the bills. The property manager was going to evict the family on Monday if she did not payment for rent. We were blessed to partner with the Real Life Center to take care of that bill for her.

We made a donation to Fayette Senior Services’ Project Love campaign. Funds raised by this campaign augment FSS’s Meals on Wheels program by enabling them to provide holiday meals for over 250 recipients. Funds are also used to provide doctor-prescribed dietary supplements and “shelf meals” (meals that do not need refrigeration).

The Youth Group, along with several other RHBC families spent the afternoon with the kids at the Georgia Baptist Children’s Home. We had between 75 and 80 folks there total between RHBC and GBCH folks. We had a great evening playing games, cooking out, and making s’mores over a camp fire. Many of the children had never made s’mores or even been around a camp fire before. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a big success!

K is a single Mom of 3. One of her children is a severe epileptic, and has been hospitalized for the last month in an effort to control her seizures. K has been unable to work for about 8 months because her daughter cannot be left alone. She receives no help from the father. She has extended family support, but financially they are unable to help at this point. Her water had been turned off, and her propane ran out, leaving the family without heat. The Real Life Center got her water turned back on, and we were blessed to be able to purchase 100 gallons of propane for them.

T and his wife have two teenage children. They both work and are normally able to make ends meet. Over the summer, however, T lost his full time job. He was able to get another job, but the hours weren’t enough, and they got behind on their bills. T started another full time job this past week that will help them get back on track, but their power would have been disconnected Friday if his bill was not paid by then. We were blessed to be able to take care of that bill for them.

H is a single Mom of 2 young children. She does not receive any child support. She has been trying to finish school and just started a new job, but she has gotten behind on her utilities and rent. Although she was able to scrape enough money together to pay her utilities and half of her rent, she was still going to be short. We were blessed to be able to take care of the other half for her.
