This person has left the following thank you note:
My husband and I would like to extend our heartful gratitude to all the donors for their humble contribution in assisting us. This means a lot to see even during these hard times there are people who are ready to help. Your assistance will take care of our rent while we could catch up on our other financial obligation providing us with at least some breathing space. Once again no words can describe how grateful we are. We hope to become part of Modest Needs community once our situation improves to keep this circle of support going. Thank you so very much.
Coronavirus: Hardworking Couple Needs Rent Assistance
My husband and I are legal immigrants trying to make a life in this beautiful country. I am working full-time for a non-profit organization for serving people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. My husband has been a delivery driver and his company closed business. He has been out of work since Covid-19 pandemic started. Due to his health issues, he is unable to work full time. He has been applying for work for part time positions till he regains his health back in several organizations with no success. We have 2 daughters who are married and living in other states.
We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. We had no savings set aside when my husband lost his job. Last year we both got involved in 3 auto accidents which placed us in both health and financial crisis. My husband losing his job in this pandemic has brought us to an edge. We do not know people and do not have that support where we can reach out for. We have been working hard to stay afloat, however, the cost of living kept raising while the earning capacity has not been sufficient. My husband has applied for his unemployment insurance, however, this has not been paid to him either. We managed to use our stimulus payments for rent and expenses so far and with those funds fully utilized, we are seeking out for assistance. We request Modest Needs' help to pay for our rent payment.
This funding will help with a roof over our heads while my husband continues searching for job opportunities and waiting for his unemployment payments to be processed. We would be so grateful for the community to provide such integral basic need when we needed the most. This will also give us chance to build our emergency funds to be prepared to face similar situations in future.
