Veteran Needs Help With Electric Bill After Many Unexpected Expenses

My Story:

I'm an older middle-aged single mom and Army Veteran (1975-1978) living from paycheck to paycheck. I have a daughter living at home and going to college to get her CNA license and eventually become a nurse. We have two older fur babies, one which recently in August developed type 2 diabetes. We are trying to better ourselves but life currently is a struggle. I work as a librarian.

I had an emergency car repair this year and I had to take out a loan to get my car fixed. I also had some dental expenses that needed to be done which caused some hardship. Then on top of that the trailer I had lived in for 13 years I was forced to move out of after a tree fell on it which as unexpected. My bank was in overdraft until each payday. I am trying to get back on my feet but everything seems to be happening all at once. I need your help with my electric bill.

This would really help me to get back on my feet and get me on firmer ground financially and still get to have a place to live. I have no where else to go otherwise. It would help me tremendously emotionally and boost my self esteem to know someone cares and I am not alone in this world. Your assistance would be a huge blessing to me.
