Car Repair Emergency, Need Help With Water Bill

My Story:

My husband and I live in Reading PA. We have 2 cats and a very energetic dog. We love gardening and doing arts and crafts. Our family previously owned two Sears Hometown stores, but sadly we closed in 2017 and we have been struggling since.

Since February, our car started to break down and we had to replace the gasket valve cover and alternator. Because of the unexpected car repair, we got behind on our bills. We need Modest needs to help us our with our water bill.

By clearing out the water bill, we will be current and have the money to catch up on other bills. We will also be able to start an emergency fund, so when things like this arise, it won't be so terrible and set us back.
