I Lost My Job and Then Found Work Again, but My Family Still Needs Help Catching Up!

My Story:

My family, our household, consists of myself, my husband, and my stepdaughter. I consider my stepdaughter to be my own, and I love her and my husband more than anything. She's 12 years old and is very active; she loves going to her dance classes and playing with her friends, both of which she misses a lot right now.

Currently, I'm the only one in our household working and that has put a significant strain on our finances. I work in healthcare as an essential worker, but I lost my previous job at the end of August and am now making $2 an hour less than I made before. I'm thankful to have found employment, but my reduced income has just not been anywhere near enough to get my family completely by on all of our bills. Furthermore, my husband has been unable to work due to some mental health issues that he has been dealing with. Being down to one reduced income has forced me into a position where I feel like I have to ask for help on behalf of my family. Specifically, I'm asking for help with our electricity bill because we are behind and are in danger of losing service.

My daughter is attending school remotely right now, and it will be winter soon, so it is imperative that we keep the lights on and the heat on. This would also free up some money to be used towards some other bills that we are behind on. It would make a huge difference for my family right now because we are really struggling and just need to take a step in the right direction to get back on track. Thank you for your compassion and consideration during this difficult time.
