MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Update: Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division community offices will be open for extended hours on Monday, July 10 from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. following Saturday's events.
MLGW Community Offices are located at:
245 South Main Street
2935 Lamar Avenue
1111 East Shelby Drive
2424 Summer Avenue
51311 Navy Road.
Both MLGW and the Memphis Grizzlies organization say that they are unaware of a $1 million donation to help people pay their utility bills.
Zach Randolph responded to the rumor in a tweet saying, "The rumor about me donating 1 million dollars to MLGW is FALSE. However I will make my annual $20,000 contribution to MIFA/MLGW in the fall."
Many people who lined up outside an MLGW kiosk in response to the rumor found their bill to be lower than it should be.
MLGW CEO Jerry Collins says all of the kiosks across Memphis have been shut down.
Anyone who went to an MLGW kiosk or Exxon on the Run/Tiger Mart kiosk since Friday to pay their bills are asked to call 901-544-6549.
