This person has left the following thank you note:
I would just like to say thank you to everyone who took out the time to even read and even consider helping myself and my grandkids. Considering all the people that are needing help right now. I really do appreciate everyone who sacrifice their time and money to help me and my family. If you only could imagine everything that we been through this past year coming into this year and in the midst of all that one of my siblings passed a day after his birthday. So this right here has helped lift a tremendous burden off me financially. Just seeing about my grandkids is a hand full. I appreciate it so much you can't see me crying, but all of you have touch my heart in a way that I though could never happen. I want to say Thank You again to all of the people who gave from their hearts. And I would also like to say Thank You to Modest Needs for giving people like myself a platform to reach out for help. This could not have been possible. Thanks again to everyone be blessed and stay safe.
I Was Laid-off Due to COVID & Given Custody of My Grandchildren! I Need Help Keeping Our Home!
I'm a grandmother of 8 wonderful children, and 6 of them are currently living with me. My daughter was unable to care for them, so they've fallen under my custody. There are 5 boys and one very outnumbered girl all living with me right now. My granddaughter loves to do her hair, and my oldest grandson is an athlete for his school. My middle grandson loves music, and his two younger brothers, ages 2 and 3, keep me very busy. We also have a new addition to the family, my 4-month-old grandson. It goes without saying that the house is very busy, but I'm doing my best to raise my grandchildren and to keep them all in line.
I was working full-time as a hotel supervisor, but when the pandemic hit last year, I was laid-off. I've been out of work for more than a year now, and I don't have unemployment benefits to rely on for help anymore. My bills are all backed up, and I'm behind on our rent by about a month now. I'm really worried about my grandkids and I being able to keep a roof over our heads.
I'm working on finding work again but juggling a job search while also caring for 6 children is very difficult, so it will take time before I can find something that will work. That's why I'm asking for assistance with our rent for this month. It will buy us the time that we need to make it through this month until I can find work again. My grandkids and I would never be able to forget this help, and we will always remember the time that strangers came together to help us keep our home so that someday we can work to repay that same level of kindness and compassion forward. Thank you all in advance for helping us keep our home and for the support you've shown us just by taking the time to read our story.
