User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for funding my application in full. It means so much to me that there are kind and generous people out there who understand that everyone goes through rough times in their life and want to help those people get through those rough times. The past several months have been the hardest times I've ever had to go through and it's such a weight off my mind that my electricity and utilities will remain on and I can get up to date on other bills as well. I look forward to what the future holds for me and this help is such a positive thing in my life. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Back to Work but Need Utilities Help

My Story:

I'm currently a single woman living alone with my two cats. I just recently started work again in an inbound call center.

Since I have just started a new job, I'm very low on funds and will not receive my first check for a while, since I started at the end of a pay period. I have depleted my savings since I had been out of work since November.

I need Modest Needs' help to pay for my past due electric bill, which is in risk of being disconnected, this bill is due soon and I'm running out of time.

This funding would bring me up to date with my utilities and allow me to start fresh with no past due balances. Your help would help me extremely and show that there are good people in this world who understand that hard times happen.

As of 2017-05-09, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2017-06-07, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $432.93 to TECO on behalf of this deserving individual.
