Lost a Loved One and Car Broke Down, Please Keep Our Electric on

My Story:

I am the sole parent to a fantastic daughter. She just turned 9 years old. She loves to play hockey, spend time with family, and do activities in the great outdoors. I work full time from home for a great family minded company in the mid-west. I did that to eliminate childcare bills and spend as much time with my daughter as possible. I have a passion for the outdoors, volunteering in my community, and reading. We have two wonderful dogs. Claire who is getting older, and Timber who is a rescue.

We live paycheck to paycheck. This year has presented several financial hardships. The two big things were my grandmother passing away, and my only vehicle breaking down. I have made steps by contacting a financial adviser, started getting a budget put together, and cutting out unnecessary spending. I do not receive any type of state aid, and need a little help with my electric bill. When the financial issues started I had to allocate my paychecks differently which caused me to get behind on my utility bills. We need Modest Needs' to help with our electric bill.

If I am unable to get it paid before October 1st our power will be shut off. I am not usually one to ask for help but we all need help from time to time. Your help with funding will get us bank on track. It would also allow me to make larger payments on my gas bill to get that current also. My goal for 2019 has been to put myself and my daughter in a position where we no longer have to worry about having utilities shut off. With this help it would allow me to take a breath, and get the rest of my financials on track. Thank you so much.
