WOW! All I can say is WOW! I cannot even begin to express the gratitude I have for this organization and the many people who helped to fund my application! You all have no idea how your assistance is helping me navigate what is arguably one of the most difficult times of my life! Your generosity and willingness to help me and my son, strangers to you, will never ever be something we forget. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! Shelly & Riley
Coronavirus: Furloughed Bartender. Need Rent Assistance
I'm a single mom with a beautiful, rambunctious two year old. I've been a bartender for four years at a privately owned restaurant and love what I do. It's true what they say, hospitality is in your blood. I've been in the hospitality industry since I graduated from college - I thrive in the fast paced, enigmatic environment of a restaurant. The Coronavirus has temporarily taken that aspect of life from me but has afforded me the opportunity to revel in my son. In every mannerism, milestone, tantrum, idiosyncrasy of his and for that, I couldn't be more thankful. We have two 6 year old boxers, my first 'sons', that help to entertain my son and keep us on our toes day in and day out!
Covid-19 pandemic has stripped me of my income. While I had money saved, the unemployment I'm receiving now totals almost half of what I made a week at work. My savings have been depleted covering bills that unemployment falls short of. I now need Modest Needs help paying my rent.
This funding would alleviate a huge amount of financial stress. It will give me an opportunity to save a small amount toward bills that will continue to come in while I am unemployed. Thank you.
As of 2020-07-09, this application has been fully funded!
This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
