Friends and neighbours have begun to Rally For Rex.
West Lincoln greenhouse operator Rex Ge had all the contents of his Hwy. 20 greenhouse frozen when Niagara Peninsula Energy disconnected his power when his account was $360 due just over 60 days.
A customer with an excellent payment record for 13 years, Ge was getting things in order after an extended trip to China to help ailing parents. The disconnection notice was put in his rural mailbox,which he had not checked since he had returned.
After reading of Ge’s plight in the March 12
edition of NewsNow, neighbour Scott Antonides has gotten involved to help Ge with financial planning and marketing.
Robert Puddicombe and Laura Fevez have opened up a bank account for contributions at Bank of Montreal. Donations can be made at any BMO branch, Transit #03262, Acct. No. 3983-612.
“This is an extreme circumstance,” said Fevez, a long-time friend of Ge’s.
“His bill was overdue, but his power should never have been disconnected. He just needs a little help, which is tough because he is reluctant to accept any. He is a good man.”
