This person has left the following thank you note:
I just want to thank everyone that donated to my need. God has been really good to me through your donations and help. The reason I fell behind, was because my granddaughter, grandson-in-law and my great grandson were living with me the past two years and they finally got an apartment for which I am very thankful, they needed their own place. They were giving me monies for rent and my granddaughter received food stamps so she was putting food in the house. I was working at a nursing home and after Covid19 became full-blown in March, my family wanted me to quit at the nursing home due to kidney disease that I was diagnosed with. Therefore, I lost the monies from that job and from my granddaughter and family. I am 72 and I loved working with the residents. So I have fallen behind in my electricity. I am trying to keep up with everything else. You guys are a answer to prayer. Prayers for each and everyone of you.
I Helped My Children Through the Pandemic. But I Just Got a Power Shut-Off Notice & Now I Need Help!
I am an older woman who currently lives alone, but up until recently, my great grandson, granddaughter, and grandson-in-law lived with me. They were going through some rough times and were living with me, but they were still paying their fair share for electricity and gas. Losing their help, as well as being laid-off from my part-time job has put me into a dire financial situation.
So far, I have been unable to collect unemployment and I really need some assistance. Unfortunately, no one is really looking to hire me because of my age so I need to rely on some other assistance to pay my bills. Crunching the numbers for my expense budget has become an almost daily task and I am extremely stressed about it right now. Currently, I need help with my electricity bill. I very behind & just got a shutoff notice for Friday. Without help, I'm going to lose power, and things are so tight I don't think I could pay the deposit they say I'd need to pay if it's turned off.
This help would allow me to continue to live independently, which is important to someone my age. It would also significantly reduce my stress by allowing me to focus on some of my other bills and debts. I have always been a generous and kind person, so it is difficult for me to accept that I need help, but I know that I need it now in order to make it through this difficult situation. Thank you for your help and for your consideration.
