After Losing my Job & Getting COVID, I Need Help Paying My Rent Please!
I'm a young woman living on my own, and I was recently laid-off of my job due to Covid-19. I was working and making good money before the pandemic, and I was able to maintain my situation pretty easily. However, I was laid-off in March, and I didn't have any other option but to start working as a delivery driver just to barely get by. The change in jobs meant a huge drop-off in my income, and now I've had to struggle to take care of all of my bills.
Switching to a lower paying job put a lot of strain on my finances, but my biggest struggle came when I tested positive for Covid-19. I was really sick, and I'm really thankful to have recovered. While I was sick with the virus, I was out of work for a few weeks, and missing that already limited income put me significantly behind on my rent. I've been in touch with my landlord and have worked out an agreement where if I can pay a portion of my rent, then I'll be able to keep my home.
Right now, I don't have any way of being able to come up with that money, so I'm asking for help with that. I just need a little more time to collect a few more paychecks and find better paying work, and this help would be a huge step in that direction. I know I have a long road ahead of me if I want to get back to where I was before the pandemic, but I know I can do it with your help. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for this generous help, and I promise to try to return the favor to someone in as much need as I am right now.
