This person has left the following thank you note:

I greatly appreciate the help with monetary funds for the electric bill. I cannot thank everyone enough. By this assistance, it will help me focus on my other bills and spending more time with my niece this summer! It was extremely difficult for me to put my pride aside by asking for help with my electric bill, but this experience has humbled me even more. I thank you. I will definitely will be paying it forward through once I get back on my feet. Thank you again.

Car Accident Caused Single Woman to Lose Income, Please Keep Her Lights On

My Story:

I am a single woman who lives alone but am an aunt to two beautiful nieces. I work very hard as a full time substance abuse counselor and I love my job! ! In my free time, I love to be with my family and close friends.

After a car crush in October 2018, I was left with a wrecked car. I also missed a lot of work and I have limited paid time off which caused me to loose income. I fell behind with bills, especially with my electricity. I would be thankful if Modest Needs could help me pay my electric bill that is 2 months behind.

This funding would eliminate some of my debt and prevent my lights/heat from being disconnected. I do not have any savings that I could use to cover this expense. Your help would be greatly appreciated! I had to put my pride aside to ask for help, which is not easy.

As of 2019-06-25, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
