This person has left the following thank you note:

I am humbled and grateful to everyone single one of you that helped me provide for my family when I could not. With every single thing going on right now, to have one worry eased is a blessing. When we lost our last home to the tornado and then the stress of having to find a new place for my family, and then potentially not being able to afford to keep us at our new place and having to move my family again, the stress was breaking my heart. With the donations we will be able to stay where we are and continue to rebuild our life. With all the help I will remind my kids that our community is so much bigger than the people we know and we have the potential to help others, the same way you have helped us. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Coronavirus: A Family Needs Help With Rent

My Story:

I am a married father to two beautiful daughters. The oldest loves basketball, anything basketball, and the youngest is a firm believer in all things unicorn and rainbows. Even with a 10 year age gap between them, they do everything together. I work full time as a collection representative for a trucking company, and my wife is currently looking for a job.

Due to Coronavirus outbreak and being issued to shelter in place, there is no time frame for when my wife is going start start with any company. My company hit some financial hurdles and had to lay off half the company. With them knowing our situation I was offered a different position in the company making less money than my previous one and we just haven't been able to recover since. We need Modest Needs' help paying our rent for the month so we are not evicted from our new home of just 4 months.

This funding will give us time for my wife to find a job, even if it's not in her field, to cover the bills that my lower income alone cannot cover. Your help will maintain the stability that my family needs after losing everything not so long ago and provide them with the example that there is always someone that can help when you need. Thank you.
