This person has left the following thank you note:
I would like to personally thank each and every person who donated to Modest Needs to help my family during these difficult times. Times are hard for everyone right now and I just want to say thank you. The stress of possibly being evicted has been lifted and it feels good. My family plans to pay it forward as soon as we are financially able to do so. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I Lost My Job and could Lose My Home Soon Too! Please Help Me With Rent.
I am a 60-year-old grandfather of six, and I am engaged to be married in the near future to a wonderful woman. We have a 15-year-old together. I work full-time as a Medical File Clerk for the Department of Veterans Affairs, and my fiance is currently unemployed due to Covid-19.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic, my fiance has lost her job and all of the monthly expenses fell to me. We were already living paycheck to paycheck before this, but now it is virtually impossible for me to pay all the bills in a timely manner. We have exhausted all of our savings trying to keep afloat. My fiance applied for unemployment a couple of months ago, but the system apparently is so backed up that she has not heard a peep to date. We are struggling to pay our rent right now and could really use a bit of help.
Receiving this assistance would bring our household current with our rent again, and it would give us some sense of normality while my fiance diligently seeks new employment. The help we receive would certainly be impactful on our family, and it would reaffirm the lesson that I have always taught my children and grandchildren: there are always going to be kind people out there willing to help others, be one of them too. Thank you for your kindness and generosity during these difficult times.
