I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I am so grateful and appreciative for the help that I received. With everything that is going on, it is so amazing to see people who are still willing to lend a helping hand. Thank you guys for everything that you do! This allows me to get a jumpstart with my bills. As of now, I have still been furloughed since April and its been rough and depressing. You all literally have shined the sun over my storm! Thank you!
Coronavirus: Furloughed Employee Needs Rental Help
I am a single mother of two divas, ages 5 and 2. I was working full-time for Smile Direct Club but have been out of work since the pandemic started. I try to do DoorDash in the mornings while the girls are at daycare, so I can make some cash to pay bills, but that has not really been enough.
I have been living paycheck to paycheck for a while now. I started to save money for a rainy day and to be able to take the girls on a vacation, but when I was temporarily laid-off I had to use all my savings to pay the bills. This has been really hard for me because I feel the weight of responsibility entirely on my shoulders. I do not want my children to suffer as a result of me being out of work, and so there has been a lot of pressure on me to provide for them. My car started to give me problems about two weeks ago, so with repairs and monthly bills I have drained my checking and savings account dry. I need help if I am going to get back on my feet, so I am requesting assistance with paying our rent.
This funding will be the inspiration and help that I need to get back on my feet after this difficult time. I know that if we get this help, my daughters and I can get back to a place of sustainability. Thank you all for your help and for your compassion.
