In partnership with ComEd, representatives from the Community and Economic Development Association will be at the Metropolitan Apostolic Community Church Saturday as part of program to help customers with their electric bills. The church is located at 4100 S. King Drive.

Through its ComEd Cares program, the electric utility will offer financial assistance for struggling customers from a $10 million pool the company has dedicated to help those in need. The money is part of a $50 million commitment the company says it made to help some customers, and it comes as a result of the 2011 Smart Grid law.

 “We understand that some customers are going through difficult financial times and may need help paying their electric bill,” said Kevin Brookins, senior vice president of Strategy and Administration for ComEd.
