This person has left the following thank you note:

I could not be more happy and more thankful right now for what Modest Needs.Org and it's donors have assisted me with. I have been having a very rough time in this current period of relocating and the like, and when I had heard that Modest Needs had claimed my application funded, I was rather suprised, joyful, and thankful. Many people can be very selfish these days around holiday time and this thoughtful and concerned funding of this particular need and application was a blessing. I thank all who had anything to do with this process and I wish a blessed holiday to them as well. Thank you and God bless...........

Help Me Escape Dangerous Living Environment

My Story:

I am a single, disabled male living in a very poor, dangerous environment. There are good people here, but overall it is a degenerate neighborhood where the rental agents and the police will do nothing to help those of us trying to live our lives peacefully.

I very much need to leave my residence as soon as I can. My lease expires at the end of the month, but I do not have the funds to pay for a truck to move what I presently own. The disability income I receive is not enough to pay for moving expenses. I really could use the assistance. I have made many calls and have found what appears to be the cheapest moving rental possible.

Assistance with this moving truck will be an enormous help to me. If this grant is not funded I am not quite certain what I will do. Without funding I will have to leave what I currently own in the current abominable residence I stay in, and will lose my security deposit due to the unmoved furniture I will have to leave behind. It is not safe for me to stay here, so I must go.

The whole situation is rather stressful and worrying. I feel I have no choice but to move for health and other logistical reasons. Getting the funds for this move has proven near-impossible on my own. As I cannot do it alone, I truly could use the assistance.

If I can get out of the residence and county I am in, it would improve my quality of life in so many ways. I am searching for a rental in a safer, quieter area where I can feel healthier and at ease. I believe my health and most everything else will improve with this move. I'm truly looking forward to being able to move, and have prayed for help to come make it possible. Thank you for considering me.
