Coronavirus: Cut Hours, Need Financial Help

My Story:

I am a single mother of two small children. My 7 year old is as sweet as can be and she is an avid piano player. My boy is a graceful little 'Hurricane' as I like to call him. He's 4, filled with energy and happiness. I'm loving every bit of staying home with them during the pandemic. My mother who lives with us is a very gentle soul. She has not been working throughout this pandemic due to her health. I've been caring for my mother for a long time. I am a manager at Taco Bell, aspiring to become an Air traffic Controller in the near future.

The pandemic has affected my family in an extreme way. My children are out of school which has caused me to reduce my work hours. I do not have enough for child care, therefore I am obligated to stay home more often to care for my small children. My mother helps with what she has the ability to and I couldn't thank her more for it. Before the pandemic, I was able to care for my family and provide basic necessities, but after the pandemic, I must pick and choose the items that are most important for our well-being. I am frustrated and worried because I must put some living expenses to the side in order to purchase daily-use items. I need Modest Needs help paying my utility bills.

This funding will help me sleep better at night. ve had countless nights constantly worrying about the bills that are owed and my inability to pay them. I was not able to save for an emergency before the pandemic which has ultimately affected me during this crisis. With this funding, I will be able to show my landlord that I am genuinely trying to be in good-standings. This will serve as a lesson for me and be the inspiration I need to better prepare for a crisis in the future. This will also set the example for my children, showing them that we should always be grateful towards help from our community and if our community requires help, we should be happy to assist.
