Single Mother Needs Electric Bill Paid After Urgent Car Repair

My Story:

I am a single mother of a 16 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. My daughter loves animals and my son loves sports. I recently started a new full time job as a Clinical Coordinator.

I am the only provider for my family and I am not able to save any money for a rainy day. I recently had to purchase two new tires for my truck because the tread was very low. In addition, I took out a high interest loan and pay day loan for expenses and that has created a snowball effect that I cannot escape from. I am not sleeping well, and I have an autoimmune disease that flares up during stress which causes hives and joint pain. Right now I am in fear that my kids and I will be in the dark as our electric bill is severely past due. We need Modest Needs help with this BGE bill.

This funding will help me get back on track with my bills and help salvage my credit history for future housing goals. It will also provide safe and stress free home for my kids. Please help us.
