Car Repair And Missed Work Drove My Power Bill Sky High

My Story:

I am a single mother of a sixteen-year-old son who loves video games and fifteen-year-old daughter who does marching band, track and soccer. I work as a school nurse and volunteer for our after-school program.

I earn just enough for our basic expenses every month, and we live paycheck to paycheck. I have no savings set aside. Recently my available hours at work have fluctuated and I had some car repair bills pop up. This has caused my electric bill to get way behind I need to have power for my kids, especially because my daughter needs to be able to run her Asthma machine. That is why I'm in the position I'm in now.

I need Modest Needs help to pay our Light Bill, which is due for disconnection. I'm worried we will be in the dark and will have find another place to stay if they turn our lights off. This will bring my light bill back to current zero balance and get me back on track. Your help will be a true blessing to me and my two kids. Thank you for a hand up in this time of need.
