I'm an Essential Delivery Driver, but My Hours are Down & I Need Help Keeping My Home Please!

My Story:

I'm a single man in my early thirties, and I've always tried to just make the most out of life. I really love basketball and music, and I would consider myself to be analytical, passionate, and relatable too. I'm definitely a people person, and I love to spend time with others for the most part, but when I need to recharge, I like to be around my two cats at home.

Currently, I work for Amazon full-time as a delivery driver, but I also drive for Grubhub on the side. Prior to working as a delivery driver, I was making good money managing a call center, but now I'm really struggling as a result of the pandemic. In my area, the number of delivery drivers has skyrocketed as a result of the pandemic. So many people have lost their jobs and can't find other work, and of course, so many people are staying home so the demand is slightly higher. This has made it a lot more difficult to find work consistently, and as a result my hours at work are down, and my side job doing deliveries has all but dried up. On top of that, the companies that I work for as a delivery driver require me to use my own vehicle and to repair it on my own means when it breaks down. I recently had to replace the tires on my car and had to pay for the costs out of pocket in order to continue working. As a result, I'm behind on my rent and need help if I'm going to avoid being evicted.

I work hard every single day to provide for myself and to try to build a life for myself, but right now it's just not enough to get by. It's hard for me to ask for help because I've always either been able to do things on my own or go without, but in this case, I need help to avoid becoming homeless. This would give me the means to keep my home and to continue to work hard, and for that, I want to say thank you in advance to all the people who help me. I'll never forget everyone who helps me keep my home.
