This person has left the following thank you note:
My sincerest thanks and appreciation to the donors who have made 3 months without work less stressful and scary for me. Without your help I would be facing eviction from my apartment. It is overwhelming to me the number of people who have reached out in different ways to help each other through this very trying and unforgiving world crisis we are experiencing. It is my only wish that I can get back to work as soon as possible so that I may be able to one day help a fellow Modest Needs applicant or anyone else in need of help in the future, as you have helped me. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You. All of you. -Libby
Coronavirus: Laid Off , Need Rent Help
I am a single young lady in her thirties that loves to be outside as much as possible riding my bike and running. Before the pandemic, I worked 40 hours a week as a bartender in a hotel and I also drove for Uber an additional 5-15 hours per week.
Before I was laid off from my job due to the pandemic I earned enough money to pay my recurring monthly expenses but I lived paycheck to paycheck. So when I was laid off without warning, I had no savings in place to pay for my bills. The biggest and most concerning is my rent. I need Modest Needs' Help to pay my rent and car payment for this month.
This funding will help me to bring all of other bills current and keep a roof over my head after being out of work for one month to date and possibly much longer. I have been taking free online courses in web design also, in the event that I am unable to go back to work come May 1st or possibly longer so that I can find a way to work from home. Your help will make a lasting impact on me getting back on track and move toward hopefully being able to help others when we all come out of this pandemic. The outpouring of support that people have given to long time hospitality and restaurant workers like myself is incredibly inspiring and heart warming and I want nothing more than to be in a position in the future to do this for others.
As of 2020-07-06, this application has been fully funded!
This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
