Covid-19: My 6 Kids and I Need Your Help to Keep the Lights On!

My Story:

I am a mother of six wonderful kids. I have three boys and three girls. My oldest son is 13, and he loves playing outside and playing video games. My 11-year-old is shy and is always wanting to learn; she is immensely helpful. My 9-year-old son loves soccer and riding his bike. My 6-year-old daughter loves playing barbies with her 3-year-old sister who is always being an adorable goof ball. My 5-year-old son is incredibly quiet and always wants to cuddle up and watch movies. My 3-year-old daughter is hands on and highly active. We love to go on hikes and bike rides/walks. I work full-time as an assistant processor in a warehouse making condiments for destinations all around the world. My significant other stays home with the kids. As you can see, we are a big, active family.

I normally earn enough to pay for our basic needs, but we do live paycheck to paycheck. With the Covid-19 pandemic going on right now, my hours have been cut but not by enough to collect unemployment. I have been struggling the past three months. Work has finally gone back to normal for me but not enough to catch back up on all the bills without leaving one or two behind. We need your help to pay our electric bill, which is two months late, putting us in danger of losing power.

This funding would put us back on track in terms of paying our bills, and it would allow us to prepare for my significant other to get back to work while my children get ready to return to school. This would be the difference between making it through this pandemic and not making it through for my family, so your help would be eternally appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to understand our situation.
