Rest assured that I will be contributing myself so that I can envision many more people being speechless with gratitude at dark times of their lives. I am more grateful than words can express, so grateful. Thank you all so much for taking this weight from my shoulders! God bless each and every one of you! Thank you!

Help With Past Due Electric Bill

My Story:

I was laid off in December, and for two and a half months, remained unemployed. When I finally returned to work, the world looked promising again. However, then our car broke down.

I have a 15 year old car, that I have been babying as it is mechanically sound (and gets 34 miles to the gallon), but the parts have begun to rust. I recently incurred an auto repair bill that exceeded $600. The mechanic found not one, but two broken structural supports in the rear. Once he began the work, it was apparent that all three needed to be replaced, which he then repaired without contacting me. It was necessary, but entirely unexpected.

Coming off of unemployment, I had begun a budget billing with my electric company, but I was forced to miss a payment due to this auto repair. I was then billed in full.

With your help, I will be back on track and able to afford all future payments. This auto repair was very unexpected and any help your group is able to offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
