Thank You to all. We are very appreciative. Help like this is hard to come by. I lost a couple things just to help my child and myself. Thank you to all that helped, I can finally stop worrying about getting another 'Notice'. I thought I lost hope, but the donors of Modest Needs saw Hope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Single Mother Needs Help With Light Bill After Period Of Unemployment

My Story:

I am a single mother of one. My two year old daughter is very energetic and keeps me busy. I work full time and always go to school full time.

I lost my job in April. I was approved for unemployment but that income wasn't enough for rent, utilities, car note or insurance so I fell behind and sometimes had to skip a bill to catch up with another bill. After a couple of months I was hired and little by little I started catching up on rent and utilities. My car note is way past due because I had to miss a bill to catch up on rent. I need Modest Needs help with my light bill.

This funding will help me to finally catch up with all my bills and not have the constant stress of falling behind. Thank you.
