To the people across the country and around the world who have help in my time of hardship thanks.Because of u i will donate to modest needs to help someone else.
My Employer Closed, and I'm Going to Lose Service to My Utilities Soon. Please Help!
I'm a single man who has been out of work since the pandemic began. I worked at an auto-repair shop prior to the pandemic, and I really liked what I was doing. However, the business took a hit, and I was laid-off as a result. I'm still searching for work but am behind on a lot of my bills.
I've always lived paycheck to paycheck, and I've never been able to put money towards savings or anything like that. I'm receiving unemployment, but since the benefits were cut, I've been struggling to get by. My utilities are behind, and I'm worried about them being shut off soon. I'm doing my best to find work again, but I really need help in the meantime.
I'm asking for help with my utilities because without my water and power, I'll have to leave my home. I don't want to be out on the streets during the winter, and I can't afford a new place to live. I'm doing my best to find employment again, but I need help keeping my lights and water on in the meantime. I know that this past year has been a struggle for a lot of people, but I also know that the only way we'll all make it through is by helping each other. It's clear that we've got to lift each other up, and I promise to help someone else do that once I'm able to. Thank you all in advance for this generous support. I'll never forget it.
