Full time Student, Recently Discharged Veteran, and Father Needs Your Help With Electric Bill

My Story:

I am a married father of two great kids, a five year old boy and a one year old girl. My son is on the Autism spectrum but is so full of life. My daughter is already going through some speech therapy, but is still really good at getting your attention. My wife is dealing with her father being in a nursing home after his stroke earlier this year. I work full-time as a mechanic at a manufacturing plant while attending Arizona State University full-time. My wife is a stay at home mom but is having a hard time finding work.

We are recovering from a moment of me being unemployed after I was wrongfully terminated from my previous employer. Also my education benefits have been put on hold by the VA, and I am in the midst of having them award me with the more a beneficial benefit. In the meantime, we need your help with our electric bill.

We were unable to make this payment due to lack of V.A. income for the last month. If we do not make this payment we are at risk for losing power. This bill needs to be paid by Oct 8th. This funding will bring us current on our utilities and avoid any further issues. I am starting a new job that offers better pay and more hours. My wife is still looking for work so that we may get ahead of our bills once more. Thank you so much.
