This person has left the following thank you note:

It is hard to find words for the true kindness and generosity that has been shown to me in granting assistance to me and my girls. It is also hard to write this note as I am crying with gratitude!!! I never expected to be in this situation and am truly humbled and eternally grateful to the individuals who have been so selfless to help my family in our time of need. Programs like Modest Needs and the individuals who support it give me faith that during the most difficult time in our lives, that there are others who are truly care and are there to help. I have every intention of paying this kindness forward at a later point when I am able to help someone else. On behalf of me and my family, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!!! Sincerely, Daune and Family

Unexpected Expenses Are Getting in the Way of Paying Our Rent & We Need Help Please!

My Story:

I am a recently separated woman with two awesome teenage girls. My 19-year-old daughter just finished her first year of college, and my 17-year-old daughter will be a sophomore in high school this year. We also have two dogs, Kodak and Ronan. I work full-time as a medical social worker for a local hospice agency.

I am recently separated and make barely enough to pay my expenses. We do not have an emergency fund and are living paycheck to paycheck. I was doing OK for a while until I had several extra unforeseen expenses come all at once. First, our dog Kodak is sick and has been to the vet several times, which has been very expensive. Unfortunately, they are still trying to figure out what is wrong with him which requires further testing. Then, I also had a tooth infection and needed a crown, the cost of which I have not yet paid. Finally, my car also needs repairs, and I am also trying to pay my monthly attorney fees for my divorce. Everything has piled up, and no I'm worried about even being able to keep our home.

There's no way I'm going to be able to cover all of our bills and our rent for this month, and I desperately need help. If I try to take care of all of these bills, then we'll lose our home, but if I can't take care of all of our bills, everything else will fall apart; we're in a truly no-win situation. However, getting help with our rent will mean that we can keep our home and meet our obligations elsewhere. Your generosity would see us through an exceptionally difficult period in our lives, and for that we would be so incredibly grateful to all of the people who come together to help us. We will never forget this and will do our best to pay it forward once we're established again.
