We Need Help with a Gas Bill After Being Out of Work Due to COVID!
I'm raising two wonderful children completely on my own, and even though being a single mother is hard, I wouldn't trade my job as their mother for anything else in the entire world. My oldest is my 17-year-old son, and he's a good student and a wonderful older brother to his 7-year-old sister. She's full of energy and always keeps a smile on face. I'm so thankful for both of my children.
Originally, I was furloughed due to the pandemic, but I've been out of work for a while now and have had an impossible time finding work again. Finding a job to sustain all of us is hard as it is, but both of my kids are home all the time doing school online, so it's been even more difficult to find work. My son can care for his little sister some of the time, but I don't want him to be responsible for raising her when he still has growing to do himself. We've managed to get by on unemployment until now, and even though I'm on the verge of getting back to work, we're still in danger of falling behind on our bills. I'm worried about our rent, but I know we'll be able to cover it if we can just free up some more income by getting help with one of our other bills. Specifically, I'm asking for help with our gas bill because it'll allow us to stay in our home and stay in our home comfortably.
By taking care of our gas bill, we'll have enough to keep up with our rent. On top of that, we'll be able to keep our service too, which means we'll be able to use our stoves and furnaces to cook and stay warm. This would be a huge help to my small family, and it's something I know me, and my children will never forget. As a mother, I want to thank you all in advance for what you've done for my family. We will never forget this and promise to pay it forward when we can.
