I use to be a volunteer for many years. It was rewarding and I learned my office skills. I also learned how do budget reports for the organization. I took grant writing classes through other non profit affilates.
I help on board as much as possible. Helping the clients get some relief for their dilemma. No matter how small or how big we did what we could do to help families in need from food to clothing to furniture pantries.
My church sponsored a felony program drive one year to get some clients record cleared so that they could move on with their lives.
I even gave some bunk bed to a needy family. I participated in the lifeline program to help families get affordable phone service. We had an annual coat drive I participated with that looks on people's face just to see people cared about their well being. We offered budget classes to teach individual how to manage their spending habits.
I am writing to alert you to the fact that the $292.00 I qualified for via the Ohio Edison Grant has not been applied to my account.
I was told the money would be credited to my Ohio Edison account within 30 minutes of leaving your office. Then again, I received a phone message the next day that stated that it was verified by Love Inc. that the account was credited. I just received my electric bill, ending date June 1, 2012, and there is not credit of $292.00. Too, upon phoning Ohio Edison I was told my account was checked by Love Inc, but that no money was sent to the account.
I still have a copy of the application and the orange sheet if you need to verify that I indeed qualified. However, you should have copies of my SSA statement of monthly income, a copy of my SSA card and Medicare card, and a copy of my electric bill. I was told these were required for the purpose of an audit.
I look forward to you correcting this problem immediately. If you would call me tomorrow, Wed, June 6, 2012, to re-verify that money was applied to my account I will be able to verify it with Ohio Edison.
Looking forward to your compliance with this matter of $292.00.
I have been a volunteer with Love In The Name of Christ for 10 years. They are a valuable non profit addition to the Akron area and are a clearinghouse connecting churches with people who need help with utility bills, rent, transportation,furniture and many other needs in the community. They provide backpacks of school supplies to the children, and last year they had a coat give away. I had a pickup truck and would get furniture from donors and deliver it to people who needed it. I worked in the office answering phone calls from clients and taking down their information. I volunteer at various events for the community.
