Couple Needs Help With Electric Bill After Income Loss

My Story:

I'm a 45 year old disabled wife. We have been married for 25 years and been together for 31 years. We have over come so much in our years, always together with GOD but we are in a very scary situation.

I receive a small monthly income but when we moved here from out of state, my information from state to state my info got lost in the system so we went a month without my income. My husband works for a large home improvement company that down sized which took him from a department manager to a janitor and a decrease in pay. This caused a huge financial strain in our lives. My income has been resolved and my medication benefits have been reinstated, but we need help to catch up. We need Modest Needs help with our electric bill.

This help would bring us current with our bills and allow our power to stay on. We won't accumulate any more late fees and can build an emergency fund. My husband can stop worrying about having funds to go to the doctor as well. I would like to tell you on behalf of my family, as a mother a wife and a woman, I will forever be thankful and grateful and I believe in paying it forward. Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
