Earlier this month, local nonprofit Helping Angels celebrated a $4,500 grant received from Trinity Valley Electric Company (TVEC) which they use to help Kaufman County residents with recurring payments including rent, electric bills and other utilities throughout the year.
“We do so many different things for families here if they get in a bind,” Helping Angels director Sandy Miller said. “Nowadays if a family misses one paycheck, that could be one of their bills. So we help them with electricity, water, we even help them with gas cards if they need to go to if they need to go to a doctor’s appointment in Dallas. There are just so many things that we do in Kaufman County.”
This grant was a part of TVEC’s Operation Round Up grant program which awards grants on a monthly basis to local nonprofit organizations.
Helping Angels is also a contributor to the regional food pantry based out of the First Assembly of God church which serves over 3,000 people each month from across three counties.
