Struggling To Recover From Hurricane Irma

My Story:

I am a married father of a high school junior who is an aspiring actor in the school's drama program. We also have a Shih Tzu named Dudley who is definitely like another child. I unfortunately lost my job due to Hurricane Irma but fortunately my wife has a full-time job as a travel agent. We are just a normal family trying to make ends meet.

Before Hurricane Irma, we were basically earning enough to live paycheck to paycheck with just a little extra. However, due to the hurricane we have had some substantial losses from personal property damage with a large hurricane deductible from our insurance. Also, I lost my job because business came to a halt after the hurricane. We are a good family just trying to recover from a major loss and get back to somewhere near normal. We need Modest Needs to help us bring our electric bill current.

This funding will help in bringing our household back to some sort of normalcy after all the expenses we have incurred due to Hurricane Irma. We have been under an incredible amount of stress just trying to replace the basics that were lost like furniture and food. Your help would be a Godsend to us in an extreme time of need and we would be forever grateful for the assistance and will definitely attempt to pay if forward in the future.
