User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeFirst of all, thank you all for helping me in this unprecedented time across our country and the globe. With your help I made it through without ending up in a deep hole financially or worse, without a roof over my head and an empty stomach. I applied here when all this covid situation was just getting started. My work closed in one day. The unemployment department in my state, Washington, always takes several weeks to get anything done. I had then recently left a job of 7 years because the position had become untenable and had drained my 'rainy day' fund some, but not completely. I went through the rest of that by the time unemployment got a move on and approved my claim, but....monetary benefits were delayed for a couple weeks. Retroactive benefits typically take longer. I have now barely made it through everything. This helps substantially as I finally am back to work as of this week but of course my next paycheck is a couple weeks away. Thanks you all for helping me out, it takes a load off my mind for just daily expenses as things get back to normal.

Coronavirus: Chef Laid Off, Please Help

My Story:

I am single male, living alone. I just recently changed jobs at the beginning of the year. I'm an outdoor person and live out in a rural area. I'm slowly falling behind on my bills and rent and my emergency fund is nearly drained. I'm a chef and an hourly kitchen manager for a Sports bar.

Unemployment is overwhelmed at the moment in Washington. I expect approval but it's taking time. I currently have no income coming in and I need Modest Needs help with my phone bill and insurance.

This grant will get me through this month without falling behind while waiting for unemployment to come through. Thank you
