Keep Lights On After Hours Were Cut at Work

My Story:

I am a grandmother with 6 wonderful grandchildren and two wonderful sons that are always there for me.I love to help and take in stranded animals for our local shelter. I live alone, and work full time to provide for myself.

My hours at my job went down and I couldn't pay the electric bill. This is only a temporary issue as the hours are going back up again but I need Modest Needs help to catch myself up. I live paycheck to paycheck with little left over for short term emergencies like this. I need your assistance to keep my lights on.

If I cant get the electric paid I will lose my heat. And I work at home as customer service and would lose my job as well. If I got help I could take a breather and not have to worry about my job and heat. Your help will give me the time to put the money to the side for the next bill. Your help would greatly make a difference in my life.
