High temperatures and low donations are adding up to be some tough numbers for charities here in the Ozarks.
Michelle McCoy is with One Door, which is trying to provide utility assistance to people. She says if your utilities get shut off, its already a bad situation, but when its 100-degrees outside that just makes the situation even worse.
She says last month they had 670 phone calls and that drained them, and they only have one church supporting them now, they did have three. And, she says more people have been giving to Joplin for its recovery from the tornado that hit in May.
One Door will keep taking applications from people who need help with their utility bills but, McCoy says they only have enough funds left to help about three families.
