This person has left the following thank you note:

I need to thank Modest Needs, both the donors and those behind the scenes, for the giftt! When I received word that my need had been funded my mouth dropped, truly. I am BEYOND grateful for the help from complete strangers who just have a desire to help. You won't be forgotten! I'll remember you all and remain grateful as I continue living my life with a lot less stress. Thank you for making it possible for me

I'm Waiting for My Teaching Job to Begin, but I Need Help Keeping My Home in the Meantime!

My Story:

I'm a teacher for a program called Headstart, and I live alone with my two black cats; I'd definitely call myself a proud cat lady! I love my job, and I love being able to give back to my community in a meaningful way. Honestly, I wish we had had the program that I work for when I was growing up, so I just feel thankful to be able to pay it forward every day. When I'm not working, I love to play my piano, learn new languages, and try to debunk urban myths.

Typically, I just make it by month to month, but through the summer it's been more and more difficult to get by. My job was on hold until August, so I was relying on delivering food through UberEats just to get by. It hasn't been enough to make it through, and now, I'm a month behind on my rent and am going to be another month behind before I can get back to work. I've tried to go to my landlord to set up some type of payment system, but he's not happy and will probably give me notice if I can't pay next months rent. So, I'm humbly asking for help with paying my rent so that I don't get evicted before I can return to my regular job.

This assistance will get me through the summer without losing my home. I'm starting my job again next week and should be able to manage all of my bills if I can get caught up on my rent and avoid losing my home. More than anything, I want to keep my home so that I can continue working at my job and giving back to my community in a meaningful way. Thank you all for helping me avoid homelessness and for your kind and compassionate assistance.
