I'm in Quarantine Due to COVID & Can't Work! Please Help Us with Our Utilities.

My Story:

My husband and I both work full-time jobs and have done our best to support ourselves and each other through the pandemic. I work full-time as a CNA in an assisted living facility, and he works full-time at a rice mill. I love my job, but it's been difficult to continue caring for the elderly through the pandemic. The restrictions have made it difficult to work at times, and recently, I have had to quarantine after being exposed to Covid-19.

My husband and I rely on both of our incomes to get by, so any interruption to that can have really bad consequences for us financially. Now that I'm waiting for a negative Covid-19 test to come back, I'm out of work with no pay. The past couple months have been tight as is, and now we're definitely going to come up short without help. We already have extensions on our utilities that are about to run out, and we need help if we have any chance of keeping our water and electricity on. I'm humbly asking for assistance with our electric and water bills that are both overdue right now.

We'll definitely be able to handle all of our expenses again when I can get back to work in the next week or so, but right now, we're just weeks away from losing our utilities. If that happens, we'll have a hard time staying in our home comfortably. Your generosity and kindness will save us from totally collapsing financially while I'm out of work. I want to thank everyone who helps us and promise to pay your kindness forward once we're back on our feet again.
