After Losing My Job to COVID, I Need Help If I'm Going to Be Able to Continue Searching for Work!
I'm a single man, and I currently live with my aunt. I'm unemployed as a result of the pandemic, but I'm constantly searching for work wherever I might be able to find it. Before Covid-19 arrived, I was working for a commercial sub-contracting company, and I was able to make a decent enough living to get by in terms of monthly and daily expenses. My aunt who lives with me is still employed, and we've always shared the bills between us.
Since being unemployed, I've been receiving benefits; however, mine were recently halted, and I haven't been able to get into contact with anyone as to why. My aunt's paycheck is only partially enough to take care of our rent and other expenses, so without my unemployment, we're really struggling to get by. We're behind on almost everything, and I'm really worried about having our internet and electricity shut-off because without either of those I won't be able to search for work, and my aunt might lose her job entirely. I'm asking for help with these two bills because they'll ensure that I can search for work and having those taken care of will also free up more money to go towards our rent that we owe.
I'm working hard to find work again, but the process has been slow. In spite of that, I know that if we can just make it one more month without losing our service or our home, then we'll be able to make it through this pandemic without losing everything. We would both be so thankful to receive this extremely generous help and will do whatever we can to pay it forward too. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity in advance.
