User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeTo All of the Donors at Modest Needs my family, The Bonds would like to say Thank You! Thank you for helping my family during our time of need. My husband was working a Government job during the pandemic so we didn�t think that our family would have been affected by my husband being furlough/laid off. My husband is also my caregiver as I am also a 100% disabled Army veteran. With my husband being laid off and my kids are both at home with one being in virtual schooling, things got overwhelming for me. I have been doing my best to help my husband find work as well as trying to maintain our household. One thing this pandemic has done was bring my family and I closer. This help means a lot to my family and myself because I just got a second shut off notice for my Gas bill and Electric bill. Respectfully yours, The Bonds

My Husband & I Are Both Veterans. After He Lost Work to COVID, We Need Help With a Utility Bill!

My Story:

I'm a wife and mother, and together, my husband and I have two children together, a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl. Our son is in virtual school, and I'm potty training our 2-year-old currently. I was a stay-at-home mom even before the pandemic because I'm disabled and can't work as a result. My husband is also out of work after being laid-off from his job. We're both veterans, but I'm the only one currently receiving VA benefits because they messed up my husband's paperwork, thereby delaying his benefits.

Even on just my income, we've been managing to keep up with most of our major bills like rent, but we've fallen behind in other areas as a result of losing his income. Right now, we're behind on a gas bill and are really close to losing service, which would really impact our family a lot. Without my husband's income, we're really drowning in our expenses, and we don't have any way to get out without help. This would get us completely caught up while my husband searches for more work and works on getting his VA benefits.

We've been having a hard time lately because we're in a situation where we have to pick and choose what we can afford, whether it's diapers for our daughter or whether it's our mortgage. This help would pull us out of that situation completely and would buy us enough time to get back on our feet again. It would mean a lot to us to know that there are people out there who care about our situation and are willing to help us through this difficult time. We promise to do our best to repay this kindness and generosity, but all we can do right now is say thank you.
