Penny's 9-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia and was extremely ill. She had to travel back and forth for treatment in Charleston and often was so sick she had to go by ambulance.
Penny had not worked for two months because of caring for the child. The Deep Well Project paid her full electric bill and referred Penny to other agencies to help with the family's ongoing needs.
Deep Well provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, the sick and the elderly.
