After Being Laid-off Due to COVID, I Need Help Catching Up on Some Bills Please!
I'm a single man living alone currently. I lost my wife a while back now, and I have two grown sons who live in different states. The Covid-19 pandemic has made it especially hard for me to see my family because I have several medical issues that make it difficult for me to travel with the virus around. In fact, it's really difficult for me to afford my medical bills, but everything got even worse when Covid-19 shut my employer down.
I was working as a delivery driver before the pandemic and was able to live modestly with my income, but I didn't have much to put aside in terms of savings or anything. So, when the pandemic happened and forced me out of work, I didn't have much to fall back on other than unemployment, which has also not been enough as of late. Like so many others, I've fallen behind on a lot of my bills, and with no means of catching up, I'm worried about what will happen to me. I'm praying that I can get assistance with my utility and internet bills.
I need to be able to keep my water and electricity on for the sake of my health and comfort, but also getting these bills taken care of would help me pay down the rent I owe as well. As for my internet bill, it's the only means I have of searching for work, and I desperately want to get back to working. I've struggled a lot in my life, but I've always been able to make it through hard times; however, I know that I need some short-term help if I'm going to make it through this situation. I would be extremely grateful to anyone who decides to help me, and I'll do my best to pay this forward. Thank you for your kindness and compassion.
