Covid-19: Family Facing Shutoffs - Need Utility Help

My Story:

My wife and I live in our home, along with our daughter and her three children. I am working full time in a call center, and I am the only one working in the family. My daughter is actively looking for work but has not found employment. My wife has an illness that keeps her from working, but is helping with the children in the home. Our grandchildren, who live with us, are ages 10, 5 and 2, and are looking forward to school in the fall.

I am working full time in a call center, but was laid off of my part time restaurant job due to cutbacks due to Covid-19. I am actively trying to get another part time job to supplement our income. We do not have a savings and fell back on our payments for our utilities. Having an adult with medical problems and 3 children in the home, we need to keep our electric, gas and water services on. We need Modest needs help paying our water bill.

Payments towards our water would enable us to be current, and prevent the shut off. Once I and my daughter have an extra part time job, we will be in a better condition financially. At that point, we plan to start a savings account to cover these types of expenses. Your financial assistance would be a great help for our family, and a great example of helpfulness and kindness for our grandchildren to emulate in their lives. Thank you.
