Hello and greetings! I want to extend a sincere THANK YOU to donors to my posting and story here. So, THANK YOU, not only do you alleviate expenses in a difficult time, but you ease my mind to say I have HELP, I can make it, and I will look forward to the rest of 2021. I'm thankful for this program with MODEST NEEDS, and very much for YOUR donation. My best wishes to you, Cam
I've Been Laid-off Since March and Have Run Out of Options! Please Help Me Keep My Home.
I'm a single man living in LA, and I've worked in professional catering for a long time now. The Coronavirus pandemic decimated my field, leaving me unemployed in the process. I've been out of work since March and have been desperately seeking employment since then but with no luck. Everything is still closed, and I can't find work as a caterer anywhere. Even most of my hobbies like spending time at the beach and going to the movies are still closed off.
This year has been really difficult, but I'm hopeful in spite of that. I've been told that my job will probably return in 2021, so I'm just trying to hold on until then. I have been on unemployment, but that hasn't been enough to cover my rent. I really need help if I'm going to avoid eviction and keep my current home until my job returns.
This help would tide me over until next year when my job resumes, and it will be an absolute blessing to have made it through this pandemic without losing everything. I will be able to start next year with a clean slate going forward and will be able to remain self-sufficient. These are extremely difficult times that we are all living through right now, but I know that we can make it through if we remain caring and generous towards one another. Therefore, I promise that once I am in a stable position and back to work, I will donate what I can to a family or a person in need. Thank you for your kindness and generosity during what has been one of my most significant hardships.
