This person has left the following thank you note:

I just wanted to tell everyone that donated a very big Thank You. It is people like you that keep these programs like Modest Needs going because, if it wasn't for the donors these people that come to programs needing help wouldn't get it. I thought I would never be that person that would ask for help but, when your a single mom with 3 kids and, getting no help from my spouse it is hard and stressful but, you want to be strong for your kids. Thank you so much once again you just don't know how much this means to me and, if I ever get myself to a point where I can give back I am and, Modest Needs is where I will start.

Mother of 3 Needs Utility Help Due to Divorce From Abusive Husband

My Story:

I am a single mom of 3 kids going through a divorce from a mentally and physically abusive husband. I have twins, a boy and a girl, ages 14yrs old. They love sports and both play competitive softball and baseball. Due to my financial situation I don't know if they will get to play this year.

My husband has left our martial home and refuses to pay or help pay any of the bills here. I was unemployed for 6 months and I was having to sell stuff around the house to keep the lights on and the mortgage paid. I recently got a job 2 months ago but I am still struggling on just one income. My utility are about to be shut off if I don't come up with $438 and I just don't have that money after I pay all the other bills. I am asking help for my utility bill I have to pay it by tomorrow or I will be shut off but if I have a program helping me they will extend it out a little bit longer. I just want to get current with them so I am not having to pay all these past due amounts.

If I can get this bill paid it would really help me so much. I would be on track to getting my finances stable and keeping the lives of my children as normal as possible.
