This person has left the following thank you note:
Thank you so much for helping us and giving us hope during an incredibly difficult and disheartening time. The donations will help us get caught up and I am already well on my way to getting back on my feet. I will be back to Modest Needs in the future to donate and help others the way that you all have helped us! I could never put into words how much this help meant to my family.
I Had to Quarantine for Two Weeks with No Pay. I Couldn't Pay Rent & We're About to Lose Our Home!
I'm a mother of three beautiful children, two high school girls and a boy in middle school. My oldest is a junior in high school and loves running and making TikToks with her friends. My younger daughter is a freshman in high school and recently became fluent in American Sign Language in order to communicate with the non-verbal at her school. My youngest is in middle school and loves to read, play football, and watch cooking shows. All of us are in love with our 3-year-old German Shepherd named Jacks.
This Fall has been exceptionally difficult for our family, and we've experienced one major blow after another. From health problems and the loss of our health insurance to major vehicle repairs and flood damage, we've been through it all and then some this season. The most recent setback was the fact that I had to quarantine for two weeks due to Covid-19, and I wasn't paid for this time away from work. This quarantine, combined with all of the other setbacks we've faced, has me behind on our rent. We desperately need help if we're going to keep our home.
I don't have any way of catching up without help, and I'm even working on getting a second job to help get caught up. We just need a little bit of hope after such a terrible past few months. I've been spending every cent I earn to put food on the table for my children. Knowing that we can stay in our home through these next few months would be such a blessing. I know that if we get this help, we'll make it through this difficult period. My family and I couldn't be more grateful for this generous assistance, and we want to thank everyone who is able to support us in advance.
