My Boys & I Need Help Keeping Our Lights On After My Hours Were Reduced Due to COVID!

My Story:

I'm a single mom with two young boys. My oldest is 15 years old, and my youngest is 9 years old. Both of my boys are extremely energetic, but also polite and helpful even at a young age. They're genuinely wonderful children, and I'm really proud to be their mother. I work hard to provide for them, and I do that by working as an assembly worker at a school bus manufacturer. The pandemic has really cut our demand, and subsequently, has cut my hours too, making it difficult to keep up with our bills.

We haven't really been able to come by much help during this pandemic because I'm still working. We never got unemployment benefits or even a stimulus check, and the prospect of getting the second, smaller one isn't looking good either. I'm thankful to still be employed, but the reduced hours have made it impossible to keep up with all of our bills. Right now, we're behind on our utility bill, and I'm worried about losing service while my children are in school remotely.

Getting your electricity shut-off is always bad, there's no doubt about that, but getting it shut-off during the middle of a pandemic while your kids are home from school could be really devastating. I don't want them to have to experience that, so I'm humbly asking for help with our electricity bill. Getting this help would also do a lot to ensure that we're able to make our rent for the upcoming month. Money is tight everywhere, so any help that we could get with this bill would be a huge blessing and relief. Thank you all for considering my boys and I for your donation and for your kindness and generosity in doing so.
