Help Our Family Keep the Lights on After Gap in Income

My Story:

I am married with three kids. My wife recently started working after a period of unemployment, but it has been hard to keep up on all of our bills after we fell behind while my wife was between jobs. We live paycheck to paycheck so having lost my wife's income for a while hit us pretty hard. We are trying to catch up with all of our bills now that she is working again, but our electric is scheduled for a disconnect and we simply wont have enough income yet to cover this bill.

We need Modest Needs help to pay our electric bill to avoid a disconnection. With three kids in the house and the winter months approaching this would be truly devastating for us.

If we can get this help with our electric it will not only keep our lights on, but it will allow us to move forward and recover from our time without my wife's income. We would be so thankful for this help during our time of need.

As of 2014-12-03, this application has been fully funded!
