UNION CITY, Mich. – A local community is rallying around an elderly woman in need of a new furnace.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Evelyn Jennings, 81, in Union City, Michigan.  Her furnace is broken and she’s been racking up high energy bills because she’s been having to use space heaters to keep warm.

The Assistant Village Manager set up the GoFundMe page, hoping to get the community to help Evelyn.  They have a goal of raising $1,500.  As of 2:00pm, they were about half-way to their goal.
