This person has left the following thank you note:
I want to thank each and every person that donated to help us with the financial hardship we have been struggling with. Just when I had almost give up, you and modest needs provided just what our family needed to stay in our home. I have realized through this struggle that there are still good and caring people in this world. This Christmas we will be in our home and that is the best feeling. This has taken a huge weight off of my shoulder. I know that money does not come easy and this is the best gift that we could have ever received at this moment. This financial help has come just in the nick of time and if not for Modest Needs and the wonderful donors we would be facing homelessness this holiday season. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thanks to COVID, We're Behind on Rent. In Three Days, We're Going to Lose Our Home. Please Help Us!
Last year, my best friend and her two children moved in with me after her husband, their father, passed away tragically. I'm so grateful to have them all with me, and they are basically my family. We all love spending time together, and I am so grateful that I've been able to give them the shelter and stability that they need right now.
Prior to the pandemic, we were doing well, and we were getting all of our bills paid on time; however, we are now both unemployed and are struggling to stay above water. My friend was an essential worker, but that didn't spare her job, and I worked at a clothing store full-time. We've faced hardship before, but it hasn't ever been this hard to get by. Even after my best friend lost her husband, financially speaking, it wasn't this hard to get by. This pandemic is really putting the squeeze on us, and I'm scared that we have reached our breaking point.
We need help with our rent if we are going to make it through this crisis, so I am humbly requesting help with keeping our home. I made a promise to my best friend and her children when her husband died that I would take care of them and keep a roof over their heads. I do not intend to break that promise, especially not now. I need help keeping our home, and I need help keeping my promise to them. Thank you for your compassion and empathy during these unprecedented times.
