Senior Citizen Needs AC Repaired in High Georgia Heat

My Story:

I am a 68 year old single woman. I do not have any close family members living and have never had children. I live off of my social security every month but am always looking for part time jobs. The problem is that at my age, it is extremely difficult to get hired so I live month to month.

I'm here because in the beginning of winter my heat went out and I had to use electric heaters to make it through. Now my AC has stopped working and needs repair. There are federal funds for these type of things, but unfortunately, I just barely do not qualify (if I had children living at home, though, I would). I live in Georgia and already the heat is bad. I spend every day covered in sweat in my home, and I just don't have the funds to fix my AC. I'm afraid that living in the continuous heat in Georgia will cause further damage my health, so I'm hoping Modest Needs can help me repair my air conditioner.

This funding will help me through the Georgia heat as I have no other place to live or go. My doctor has given me the talks that start with 'now that you are over 65, you can't do this or you need to do this', the most recent of which was staying out of the heat. Your help will truly make a difference in my life. Thank you for your kindness and any help you can give.
