I Was Working in the Restaurant Industry before COVID. Now, I Need Help with a Power Bill Please!

My Story:

I'm a single woman living on my own, and before the pandemic, I worked full-time for a restaurant supply company. When the restaurants began to close, our whole department was let go of. It's been impossible to get by since then, and the only way I've been able to make it at all is by exhausting my savings and through the pandemic relief unemployment benefits.

However, those have both completely run out at this point, and I'm in a desperate situation. I'm behind on all of my essential bills, and I really need help if I'm going to make it through this pandemic without losing everything. I'm asking for help with my electric bill specifically because I'm about to lose service, and I need a way to continue searching for work. Also, it would help me catch up on some of my other bills too.

I've worked in the restaurant industry for as long as I can remember, so it's been really hard for me to find work in other places where my experience would be valuable. I'm worried that I'll be out of this work until this pandemic is over, and if that happens, I'll lose my home without short-term help. Truthfully, this wouldn't alleviate all of my problems, but it would be a big step in the right direction and would do a lot to get me back on track while I look for work. For that, I'd like to thank everyone who even just considers helping me in advance. I'll never forget this kindness and generosity.
