I truly have no words to say thank you enough. Everyone's generosity is so overwhelming in our time of need. We have been struggling to make ends meet, and with your generosity and my being able to find and start working, there is a light at the end of our tunnel and we can finally start to get back on track. We are looking forward to some day soon, being able to give back to our community or members that are facing the same struggles we have been faced with. My heart is full and it is amazing to find selfless people do still exist. It truly does take a village to raise a family and we are so thankful to be a part of this village. Surrounded by people who truly are angels on earth. So, from my family to all of yours, THANK YOU, thank you so much for showing us compassion, love and understanding through this rough patch! Sincerely Arin and family
Family Needs Rent Help after Medical Hardship
I am a married mother of 2. Our 11-year-old son loves hockey and Legos, while our 8-year-old daughter enjoys dance, gymnastics, and dolls. My husband works full-time as a driver for waste management, and has been doing this job for 25 years. I recently had surgery, and am currently out of work, but hope to be back to work soon.
My husband's earnings are enough to support our family, but we encountered a lot of expenses due to my surgery and needing to buy new tires for our car. I had only recently started my job when I learned I needed to have surgery, so I did not qualify for any leave benefits and was let go. The good news is that I have recovered from surgery, and am actively seeking a new position. The bad news is that the loss of income, combined with the medical bills and tire costs have left us struggling to cover all of our expenses this month.
We are asking for help to pay our rent. We are choosing between expenses this month, and fear that we will risk eviction if we do not make our rent payment soon.
Your assistance would put us back on schedule with our bills. This help would make a huge impact on our entire family. It will allow my husband and I to stabilize our financial situation while I seek new employment, and it will also show our kids that people can make a true difference in the lives of others. Our goal is to be able to pay it forward and help someone else in the same way once we are back on our feet again.
