Sarpy County charity pays rent for tenant after check stolen from drop box
BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) - A disabled tenant faced eviction from her Bellevue Gardens apartment after her rent check was stolen.
Jodie Wilson claimed she put a cashier’s check in a drop box and the management later reported an office break-in to the police.
A charity called Lift Up Sarpy County paid the back rent and late fees for Wilson.
“It’s a great relief because I had no other way to come up with the money,” Wilson said. “I had no second income to make up for that check, I can only pay my rent one time a month, not twice.”
Wilson and her son left Sarpy County Court Tuesday not only thankful for the financial help, but relieved after an attorney for the landlord dropped eviction proceedings.
