Hurricane Dorian: Missed Work and Need Help

My Story:

I am a single mom to two very special boys, who are ages 5 and 10. They are both very smart, creative and full of energy. I am employed full time and I am studying at the same time.

I usually have no issues with paying my bills on time every single month. I hardly ever have any extra spending money and I live paycheck to paycheck. The area that my family and I live in was affected by Hurricane Dorian, which caused me to be unable to work and we had to evacuate. The storm last year took severe affects on not only myself but my kids as well. Both of them are special needs children and I had to use all my savings to evacuate so we could be safe. I need help to pay my spectrum bill. I cannot afford this now as I missed days at work and had to pay for a hotel to stay in during the storm.

This funding will help my family tremendously. Your help will allow me to continue to work and my kids go to school and live a normal life. It will relieve the high anxiety I have and also allow my children and I to be caught up on bills and not go through the hardships the domino effect would have.
