This person has left the following thank you note:

User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI can not express the gratitude and relief that I am feeling. My husband and I have tried many assistance programs and have been turned down so many times. There have been many nights that I have stayed awake wondering what I am to do. Through the assistance of several donors from Modest Needs, we are able to breathe a little better knowing that we are able to get back on our feet. I thank you, Modest Needs Donors, from the bottom of my heart. I will pass on the knowledge to other recipients who may need help in the future. I hope that one day I will be able to help someone as you have helped us. Thank you very much. Margie & William

I Couldn't Work for a Time Due to Lung Transplant. Please Help Us to Pay Past-Due Power Bill

My Story:

I am female, living with my husband who is a veteran. He loves life and fishing. I work full time as Assistant Manager of a property and my husband is on disability due to his liver transplant.

My husband had liver a transplant in March which caused him to be out of work. He will start collecting his disability checks only from June. We live paycheck to paycheck and we are able to meet our basic expenses every month. I had to take a leave of absence in February to travel to Nashville TN with my husband. We stayed a little over a month and did not have income coming in. Since then, we have fallen behind in our monthly bills. I need Modest Needs help paying our electric bill.

Your help will relieve our stress of not having utility service. This funding will help us get caught up on the utilities until he gets his first check in June. I am working full time again and will be able to meet our expenses every month moving forward.
