Income Cut/Unexpected Heating Bill

My Story:


We are a family of five: two adults and three children under the age of 11. My wife and I both work, however, my hours were cut back recently and my wife works strictly on a commission basis. Her income has been cut drastically due to it being very slow at work.

Since it has gotten pretty cold early on where we live, we had an unexpected propane bill. Because of having to pay that bill immediately, we are unable to afford to pay our car insurance payment to bring us up to date.

They will cancel our insurance if it isn't paid by the end of November, which in turn will cause us to lose our vehicles and not be able to get to work, which would put us in an even worse position financially. This assistance from Modest Needs would be greatly appreciated and when we are able, we will repay the kindness. Thank you very much.
