I Had to Switch Jobs Due to COVID & I Need Urgent Help with Our Utilities!
I am a single mother of two children (one in the home and one outside of my home). My 11-year-old son who lives with me is very animated and loves to be outside riding his scooter. I work full-time as a Warehouse Associate for Amazon's night shift. It's very hard work, but it's the only way I can pay my bills for my son and I.
Covid-19 has made a huge impact on our financial situation in two different ways. At my previous employer, I requested an alternate work schedule because my son was out of school at the time, and I needed to be home with him. However, that work schedule was denied, and I was also hit with a 42% paycut due to the pandemic as well. I had to change jobs to be able to provide for my son and I, and while this job has been able to keep a roof over our heads, expenses have been tight this month and left us struggling hard.
I'm humbly asking for assistance with our utility bill and our car insurance. I'm unable to cover the cost of these at the present moment and I'm concerned that without help, my utility accounts will go to past due status which they haven't been at since being at this new address. Without the help for my car insurance payment, it will cancel my car insurance which in turn means that I won't be able to drive to work. I'm terrified that not being able to take care of these bills will cause us to fall into a cycle that we'll never be able to escape. My son and I would be so grateful for this help, and I know that we'll be able to get back on our feet thanks to your generosity and kindness. So, thank you in advance for that.
