DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin non-profits CISC and Love INC now have $45,000 more to help community members struggling financially.
This morning, representatives from Campbell Global and TXU Energy presented the check to the Christian Information & Service Center and Love In the Name of Christ. Campbell donated $7,500 and TXU matched their donation $5 to $1.
The money will now go back to the community.
"We have weather right now at 100 and 105 degrees," said CISC Director Yulonda Richard. "We have elderly that are suffering, and they don't have to because of TXU and this money."
Richard said the organization has seen an increase in people asking for help and have been forced to extend their hours.
The money will go to help residents looking for help with electric bills.
