No one thinks they will need emergency financial assistance. Yet a 2011 survey found that 64% of Americans do not have enough cash to cover a $1000 emergency.
Rhea County residents facing financial crises sometimes turn to We Care Emergency Assistance for help paying rent and utility bills or buying prescription medicine. The program is funded in part by the Dayton Ministerial Association's Thanksgiving Fund and the Dayton Electric Department's Warm Neighbors program.
Your $50 donation will help a family pay their electric bill this month when they can’t make ends meet.
