Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for everything you guys have done for us. I'm currently at work overwhelmed with emotions. The heart and souls you all have are so beautiful, and it really puts in perspective the beauty and great hearts that people of the world have. This is going to help our family so much right now, and I'm speechless. Again, Thank you. Words cannot express the gratitude I have right now. With love, Christie & Family
Covid Left Us Unable to Pay Our Power Bill. We're Being Cut Off this Weekend & Really Need Help!
I am a mother, and I have two teenage boys who are loveable, even if they are a handful. My 14-year-old is starting high school and my youngest is going into middle school. My oldest is a dungeons and dragons fanatic, and you can find my youngest outside playing with our dog. I work full-time selling cars for our local Honda dealer, and my fiance works at a sugar company. Family is everything to me, and I love my kids and my soon-to-be husband more than anything.
We are small happy family, and we earn enough to get by, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been struggling. My dealership cut our hours and I have had to home school the boys; therefore, my sales have been cut almost in half, leaving us with barely enough money to get by. I do not get child support, as the father of my child tragically passed away, and we used our savings to stay afloat during this time. I had a second job as a bartender, but the restaurant closed, and it has been tough getting the extra money, so I am asking you for help to pay for my electric bill.
This funding will help us keep food on the table and have rent paid, thereby keeping us in good standing with our landlord. It will also make sure we keep our power before the winter gets here. With the state opening back up, and harvest time around the corner, both me and fiance are going to be back to work with normal paychecks. Your help would tide us over until then. We will return the favor after we work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic.
