I Lost Hours to Covid-19 and I Need Help to Keep My Lights On While I Work to Get Back to Normal!

My Story:

I'm a single woman, and I live alone in a pretty decent neighborhood that I like a lot. I also love my job where I work as paralegal. It's hard work, but I love the work environment and it definitely pays off because I feel like the kind of work that our firm does really helps people.

I'm technically considered an essential worker, but that hasn't kept my hours from being reduced unfortunately. Our courthouses were closed due to the pandemic, and our firm has struggled as a result. This has led them to cut my hours back pretty significantly, to the point where I am having a hard time paying all my bills. I'm used to living paycheck to paycheck, so this interruption to my income has been really hard to bear because I was barely making it before this pandemic.

This struggle has brought me to the point where I must now turn to the kindness of strangers for help with paying my electricity bill. Our courthouses have opened again, and our business has returned to more sustainable levels, but until I can get my paychecks back to normal, I need help with this electricity bill. This help would allow me to keep my lights and A/C on while I continue to work hard as a paralegal. Thank you for your support and compassion during this difficult time in my life and many others' lives.
