I Take Care of My Mother and My Son, and We Need Help Keeping the Lights On Due to COVID!
I am a single mother, and I take care of my 4-year-old son and my mother. My son is full of love and energy and brings so much joy to our lives. I was a full-time server at The Cheesecake Factory before the pandemic and my mother has been a CNA for over 10 years.
Prior to the pandemic, we lived paycheck to paycheck, making it nearly impossible to put anything aside in terms of savings. We have also recently had trouble with our car, which has wiped out what little savings we had. Currently, we are struggling to make ends meet and we are behind on a few bills. Specifically, we need help to pay our electric bill. It is about 3 months behind and even with unemployment, it has been hard for me to keep up with it.
This funding will bring my bills up to date, giving me the opportunity to catch up on smaller bills which will relieve a lot of stress. With all that is going on in the world now, it is great to know that there are still people that genuinely care about the well-being of others and are trying to help. Thank you all for your time and for your consideration.
