This person has left the following thank you note:
Thank you for helping me. I was at my wits end. I was scared that no one would help me. I am so very thankful. I am going to help someone when I am able to. I was feeling down and now I feel hopeful that things will get better. I refuse to give up. Thanks for helping me it has been a difficult year. I can now keep my health insurance and my cellphone will stay on for next month. I can get calls for work when my work returns. I can see my Doctor without worrying how I will pay the medical bill. I hope that you and your family stay safe.
Covid-19 Forced Me Out of 2 Jobs! Now I Need to Stay Healthy and In Touch So I Can Get Back to Work!
I'm a single woman who lives alone, and I worked as an actor and for a catering company before the pandemic began. I'm a hard worker, always working to jobs to get by. While acting is really my passion, I also loved my job at the catering company I worked for.
Since the pandemic began, I have been in survival mode, and have been doing my best to scrape by on what little I had saved prior to losing both my jobs. My savings are pretty much gone at this point, and my bills are piling up. I've been able to stay on top of my rent and utilities, but I have medical bills that are outstanding and that I need help with. Taking care of my phone bill is also vital to my ability to make it through this crisis too because it is what allows me to be able t apply for jobs.
Therefore, I am humbly requesting help with my medical bill and a phone bill. Both of these expenses are incredibly important to my ability to get back to work. I need to make sure that I'm healthy enough to return to work when businesses begin to reopen, and I need to make sure that I can stay in touch with potential employers. This help would be the difference between returning to work and not returning to work, and I could not be more grateful to you all for your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
