This person has left the following thank you note:
I can't thank you enough for the gift you have given my family. Without Modes Needs, I'm not sure how we would have gotten through this tough time. It warms my heart to know that even in the most difficult of circumstances people are still willing to help each other. I wish there was a way to repay you. The fact that I will be able to sleep a bit better with this taken off my plate is worth more than the value of the dollar. God Bless you and your family.
I'm a Breast Cancer Survivor Who Was Laid-off Due to COVID & We Need Help Keeping Our Home!
I'm a wife to an amazing man, and I recently beat breast cancer just last July. My husband currently stays at home to take care of his disabled brother, so I'm the sole income earner for our family. It's been hard for us to get by since last year after I was laid-off. My employer claims it was due to Covid-19, but I believe in my heart my employer used the virus as an excuse because they couldn't fire me for having cancer. For instance, I was told that as soon as a position was available that they would bring me back. In June I started seeing posts for open full time positions, and when I reapplied HR stated, 'they are going a different direction.'
Prior to the virus my family was already living paycheck to paycheck. We have been able to survive on SNAP benefits, our income tax return, stimulus checks, my unemployment, and the food delivery work I've been doing on the side. My unemployment has been exhausted at this point, and I'm terrified that we won't be able to make our rent next month.
I'm asking for help with our rent because the anxiety and stress at the thought of losing our home makes me physically ill. There is a constant state of anxiety and fear in my home, and the everyday struggle to just provide for my family is taking a huge toll on us all. Not knowing how we are going to keep the electricity on or the insurance on our vehicle consumes every waking thought. If we were blessed to receive this help, then it would put those fears and anxieties to rest, and it would bridge the gap enough to put me in a position where I can get back to taking care of my family without worrying about the roof over our head being gone the next day. On behalf of my whole family, I want to thank everyone who helps us get to the other side of this struggle. We will never forget your generosity and kindness.
