Words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am for the consideration and funding of my request for assistance. I cried when I was reading the email telling me of the good news,i felt a great relief . The news came just perfect i would wake up every morning to check my email . There is no worse feeling as a mother than not being able to provide for your children. I've been up countless nights praying and seeking guidance for my next steps. The generosity shown to me will allow my family to stay with water and light . Thank you for reading my plea for help. Thank you for donating to my family. Thank you to Modest Needs for having this wonderful program for families like mine to reach out for help. Thank you for reminding me that the generosity of others is still there. It is inspiring me to keep working hard and not give up. With much love and gratitude! Ingrid and Family . God Bless You Today and Always !!!!
I Lost My Job to COVID. We Have a Baby on the Way, but We Can't Keep Our Lights On Without Help!
I've been in a relationship with my high school sweetheart for 8 years now! Together, we have a 7-year-old son and another child on the way. We're so excited to welcome a new addition to the family. However, we're really struggling right now due to the pandemic.
My boyfriend is the only one working, and his income isn't enough to sustain us right now. He works full-time, but without my income we can't take care of all of our bills. I used to make good money working at a dentist's office, but it closed due to Covid-19. I also have to stay home with our 7-year-old, and I'm pregnant so it's difficult to find work given those circumstances.
We're really worried about being able to stay on top of all of our bills, and if we could just get relief with one of them it would be incredibly helpful. Our utility bill is currently behind and taking care of that would make our situation way more manageable.
This help would keep our lights and water on, but it would also free up enough income to go towards our mortgage too. I have cried myself to sleep every night due to the stress we are currently under, and I don't know what to do other than to ask for help. If we get the relief we need, we will be able to make it through these difficult times and be able to give our newborn a home to come back to. Thank you for your compassion and kindness during these very uncertain times.
