Our Power is Scheduled for Disconnection. If that Happens, Our Son Can't Go to School!

My Story:

I'm a married mother of a fast growing 12-year-old. Our son is very loving and helpful, and he is getting so tall! He enjoys playing with his best friend and puppy named Ella. He misses in-person learning but is doing a great job in school this year, nonetheless. I work full-time doing clerical work at a Chevy dealership, helping people get funding for new or used vehicles. My husband works as a part-time essential worker providing hot meals for people.

We usually earn enough to get by but have been struggling because our hours have been cut dramatically. I'm starting to worry that we may not be able to afford the holidays, or even be able to keep our lights on for the holidays. One of our cars broke down recently, and it's really putting a strain on how many hours we can work. We're also behind on our utilities, and we've just gotten a electric disconnect notice. We can't afford to lose service while our son is schooling remotely.

If we can get our power bill taken care of, then we'll be able to fix our car and get our hours back to normal. I know that we can keep our home and get back on track with this help. Personally, it would warm our hearts to know our community cares about our success and supports us in our journey to becoming more financially independent. We want to be able to help others in time for the holidays as well, and we promise to give back when we can! Thank you for your compassion and for taking time to read our story.
