I want to thank all that helped my father and I to get our electric bill paid, so he can keep is oxygen tank. When people are in dire need, there are individuals out there that are willing to help. I applaud you and I love modest needs for this, they said they could help us, and they did. I have researched so many places for help most were scams, I am happy that I found all of the individuals that helped my father and I. Thank you so much.

URGENT! Taking Care Of Elderly Father On Oxygen And Unable To Afford Unusually Large Electric Bill

My Story:

I am a single mother with grown kids, who all have their own lives now. I stay at home to take care of my disabled father, who is wheel chair bound and on oxygen. He was in the air force and is an honorably discharged veteran. He needs constant care, which I provide, and we live on fixed income.

Over the summer our electric bill has been over three times what it normally is. Due to my father's health condition we need to keep the power on and can not afford to be shut off. We are turning to Modest Needs in order to prevent this disaster, which could be detrimental to my father's health. Not getting this help could cause a chain reaction, because we would have to skim from other important bills, as well as from our food. I am very stressed, and have exhausted all resources in order to come up with the money.

This assistance will help us keep our power on, which is essential for my father's well being. I wouldn't be able to thank you enough for this help.
