LINCOLNTON, NC (AP) — Worries are a little lighter for more than a dozen North Carolina households in danger of losing electric power.

The Gaston Gazette reports that the same Good Samaritan is making it an annual tradition to help those in need at Rutherford Electric Membership Corp., an electric co-op that serves rural households in parts of 10 counties just west of Gastonia.

The co-op’s Linda Garner says the anonymous man first walked into its Lincolnton office in 2009 with $2,000 and asked staffers to find families who needed it. Garner says the co-op’s workers now keep a list of people who are having a hard time. He came back in 2010, and again this year.

His donation this month helped 14 families pay their bills.
