“We were able to comb through and find people who had been late, people who had gone through situations, people who had called in about going through COVID-related situations or a layoff from work or just had a pattern of being behind and just could not get ahead,” Travis Large said.
Huntsville Utilities is not disconnecting services right now for nonpayment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Acteevist Project is a community-funded organization created to impact and bless others.
The Acteevist Army, as they’re called, have already supported a struggling local business and plans to donate to an education project for both teachers and students in a couple weeks.
