EAST ST. LOUIS, ILL. (KMOX) – Hundreds of East Saint Louisans showed up to The Jackie Joyner Kersee center yesterday to apply for utility assistance.

Kersee and Ameren Illinois’ Richard Mark were there to meet and greet the people.

“What we try to do is help them set up payment agreements, make sure that they don’t get disconnected during the summer,” Mark says.

Over six hundred people received up to $150 in utility assistance. Later today, Ameren Illinois will be in Collinsville extending help.
