I wanted to personally thank each and every one of you for your such kind,selfless, generous gestures and donations during this very tough time. This really means so much to me more so because my son will get to keep his home and it was all possible because of all of you. We are so blessed to have people like you all in the world. Peace and Blessings to you all!
COVID Has Left Me Short on Rent. Please Help Me Keep the Only Home My Son Has Ever Known.
I'm a young, single mother raising a 5-year-old son. He absolutely loves all types of sports and loves gaming as well. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, I was working at a pediatric home healthcare company in order to provide for my son and I, but I was laid-off almost two months ago now.
I was working paycheck to paycheck at that company for about two years and have exhausted the small amount of savings I was able to put away already. I've resorted to skipping meals to be able to pay our bills on time, but that still hasn't stopped me from coming up short. Our rent is overdue, and I don't have any way to pay it off. We'll be evicted before the end of the month if we don't get some short-term assistance.
Above all else, I don't want my son to have to feel the hardship we are facing, but if we lose our home, then I won't be able to shield him from that. It breaks my heart to think that I will have to explain to my son that we no longer have a home to go back to. It would be a huge blessing not to have to tell my son that we are going to lose our home, and it would give me more time to find employment again. I can get back to work if we can just keep our home through this month. We will never forget this help, and I want to thank you for taking the time to consider our story.
