This person has left the following thank you note:
I am more than grateful, thankful, and honored that you all chose to help me and my family. Last year has been a rough year for most people just as for myself and my two daughters. I know you took the time to help us and I want to say 'Thak You'! I am sure there were other things you could have done other things with the funding you decided to donate to us but helped anyway. I will definitely return the favor! I will be more than happy to help someone the same way you all helped me. That is what I'm sure this organization is all about and I will definitely do my part. Thanks once again and may God bless you all. Sincerely, Yalanda Devine
My Girls Returned from School to Help Me, but We Need Help with a Power Bill to Stay on Our Feet!
I'm a single parent to two college-aged daughters. They were attending school but had to leave due to the pandemic and due to my health issues as well. I'm unable to work due to being high-risk for Covid-19. I have issues with heart palpitations, shortness of breath, anxiety, and depression too. I left my job and my daughters returned from college in order to help me with the bills until I can safely return to work. I'm extremely grateful for them, and I'm eager to see them return to school as soon as possible.
Currently, my youngest daughter is the only one working right now because her sister injured her knee and requires surgery as a result. She's been out of work for a while now, and we're struggling on just one income. To make matters worse our car broke down, and we can't afford the repairs on top of our monthly bills. My biggest concern right now is that we're having trouble affording our electric bill, so we need help so that we can pay it as well as our car repair.
We're stuck in a bad place where we've got to pick and choose what bills we can afford, and as a result we're in danger of losing everything. However, with this help, my daughter will be able to go back to work, and we'll be able to get to a point where I can return to work and they can return to school. We would be honored to receive this assistance so that one day we can return this generous act and help a family who needs assistance like we do now. Thank you for your kindness and generosity in helping us with this electric bill.
