BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A post on the Owen Electric Cooperative, Inc. Facebook page told a story of a stranger warming the hearts and homes of people in Boone County.

A woman entered their Florence office on Tuesday and handed over an envelope with $1,000 in it. She asked that the money be applied to accounts that were past due in Boone County. The Facebook post said the money was used to go toward accounts that were subject for disconnect.

The post has been shared over 700 times on Facebook, making these cold days a little warmer.
