This person has left the following thank you note:
I would like to take the time to thank everyone for their generosity in this time of need. Getting this bill off my plate will free up that money to pay on something else. It's amazing that people like you step up to help not even knowing the person you are helping! You have restored my faith in humanity in this crazy world we are living in now. Again thank you so very much. Sharon
My Hours Have Been Reduced to Part-time Thanks to COVID. I Need Help Keeping My Lights on Please!
I'm a 61-year-old woman living on my own. I've always been able to make ends meet for myself by working at a furniture store. However, Covid-19 has made everything more difficult lately, and my hours have gone from full-time to part-time as a result.
I'm barely hanging on right now, and I desperately need help if I'm going to make it through this seemingly endless crisis. On top of losing hours to the pandemic, I've had to have my car repaired so that I can keep going to and from work. That unexpected expense as well as the lost hours have made my situation unbearable. I've fallen behind on my utilities and need help soon if I'm going to catch up in time to avoid a shut-off. After my parents and brother passed a while back, I don't have anyone to rely on for help. That's why I'm asking for help with my utility bill for this past month.
Getting this help would allow me to avoid a shut-off, but it would also free up money to go towards my past due rent as well. In short, I'll be able to keep my lights on and a roof over my head until I can get back to having regular hours. For that, I couldn't be more grateful to everyone who decides to help me. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank all of you in advance, and I promise to never forget this generous assistance.
