Senior Citizen Needs AC Repaired in High Georgia Heat

My Story:

I am a 68 year old widowed, then divorced 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.

I am always looking for part time jobs but at my age, it is extremely difficult to get hired so I live month to month. 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. I need Modest Needs to help pay for the repair on my Air Conditioning Unit. There is federal funds for these type of things, unfortunately, I just barely do not qualify. I don't have the funds for it and fear that living in the continuous heat in Georgia which affects my health will cause further damage. I don't have an exact time that this has to be paid, any help will be appreciated more than you know. It is not easy to have to ask for help, but bless all of you that give help.

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
