We would like to Thank all of the donors, all of you wonderful people who are making it possible for us to keep a home for our girls and give us a chance to catch up with our new employment changes coming this new year. We just needed a little help and are so grateful to all of you who are making that possible through your generosity and kindness. We are so amazed and Thankful to have people come together to help our family, especially knowing how everyone is going through such hard times right now, and for all of you to help us even with your own struggles, is very touching and restores our faith in the humanity and true generosity of people. Thank you and God Bless all of you and may the New Year bring all of you...all of us Good Health, Happiness, Miracles and Blessings. All of our Love and Thanks The Sayong Family

Hardworking Couple of 2 Needs Rental Help After Income Loss

My Story:

I am married and we have four children. We currently have two girls living at home now; our 19 year old who is in school and loves writing, and our 14 year old very talented artist. Both girls love taking our dog Maggy for walks, as they love spending time with her and it is good exercise for everyone. I work part-time for Disneyland Resort and have been there for almost five years as a custodian and busser. My husband works for Smart & Final and has been there for almost five years, and works in the Deli dept.

Recently Disney has cut my hours which has made it very hard to keep up on the bills and rent. We also had to take out a loan for some unexpected expenses dealing with an illness and having to pay regular expenses along with the loan payments each month with less hours is near to impossible. We just need help to pay this months rent so we can keep a home for our girls, as we don't want to be homeless again. Prior to this apartment we were living from motel to motel and even in our car. We don't want them to go through that again. We need your help with rent.

This funding will get us current on our rent to keep this home for our girls, and give us an opportunity to catch up and be able to pay on time from here on out. I am going to be starting a new job soon in custodial with more hours. This will allow us to be able to keep our home, pay the bills and maybe someday give and help someone else. Thank you.
