ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A funeral home is reopening an east Albany location that's been closed for seven years.

Instead of having a grand opening celebration, the owner of M.L. King Funeral Home is thanking the community by giving back to their Clark Avenue neighborhood.

In response to the recent blast of cold weather, the owner decided to pay the water, gas and light bill for two families.

"A lot of people needed their utilities bills paid and versus having a grand opening, we're going to reach out to the community. People can come in and put their name in a box, we will select two people and no matter what their bill is we'll pay it," Nathaniel Payne, M.L. King Funeral Home Owner.

Payne says he trusts that only those who really need help with their utility bill will submit their names.

You can sign up at the funeral home at 1181 Clark Avenue Monday to Friday nine to five.
