We Need Help with an Electric Bill After Being Unable to Work Due to COVID!
We're a family of five and have three young children at home. We've all been forced to stay indoors because my husband and I are high-risk for Covid-19. We've done our best to try to find a situation where we can work from home, but there's just nothing available for us at the moment. We also have to be home to stay with our children who are all learning virtually.
Thanks to the savings that we had, we've been able to manage our rent pretty well. The unemployment benefits were keeping us above water with our other bills, but since those have been significantly reduced, we've had a tough time keeping up with things like our utilities. We're pretty far behind, and I'm worried about having our electricity shut-off while our kids are trying to attend school remotely. I'm asking for help with our electric bill so that our children can continue to attend school without interruption.
This help would allow my children to stay in school for the time being, and it would allow my husband and I to keep looking for work from home opportunities. We're hoping that things will start returning to normal soon and that we'll be able to get vaccinated and return to work once our children have returned to in-person schooling. We'll be able to keep our household stable from that point onward and would be extremely grateful for help with that. Thank you to everyone who helps us with this bill in advance, and we promise to do our best to pay it forward when we can!
