All Three of Us Were Working Full-time Before COVID. Now We're Down to One Income & Need Help!
I'm a father, and I live with my girlfriend and my brother currently. My girlfriend and I have a daughter together who is 3 years old. More than anything, we love to spend time together as a family, especially outdoors taking our dog for long walks in the park. Currently, I work in a hospital, my girlfriend is a stay-at-home mom due to Covid-19, and my brother is going to school but was working prior to the pandemic.
All three of us were employed full-time at one point, and we were doing a good job of always paying our bills on time and putting food on the table. My girlfriend was a dialysis technician, and my brother was a driver before his company filed for bankruptcy. I used to work full-time at the hospital, but I'm only working part-time now. We've pretty much drained our savings to put food on the table and to keep a roof over our heads, so now we're really struggling to make it. My girlfriend and brother are both trying to work some side jobs making cakes and doing car washing, but those haven't been anywhere near enough to replace their lost income. We're two months past due on our electric bill, and I'm worried we won't be able to catch up anytime soon without help.
I'm asking for help with our electric bill for two different reasons. First, it's overdue by two months, and we're facing a shut-off as a result. Second, getting this help would free up more of my income to go towards our rent which is also behind currently. This will tide us over for a little bit longer until things begin to reopen, and we can all get back to working full-time. Thank you for your consideration and kindness in advance. This would truly be a huge difference maker for my family during a time where we could really use the help.
