I'm a Single Mom Struggling to Balance Unexpected Expenses, & I Need Help Keeping Our Gas On!

My Story:

I'm a single mom with three kids at home that I'm raising on my own. My oldest is my 17-year-old daughter who loves to dance and has been taking lessons since she was just 3 years old. My middle child is 16 years old, and he plays football and is also an excellent student as well. My youngest son is also an athlete and plays both basketball and football. I work hard to support my family on my own, and I'm currently working full-time in the logistics industry. It's very hard work and demanding of my time, but I'm thankful to have been able to remain at my job through Covid-19.

Living on one income means that we have to work with a very limited and tight budget month to month, and any disruption to that can make it very difficult for us to get by. The most recent disruption has been due to my company restructuring the way that bonuses work, and that restructuring has caused me to lose a lot of income. We've also faced a lot of other difficulties over the past few months; for example, I was in a car accident and the other party didn't have insurance, so I had to pay a deductible. Then, we were also setback after having to replace the tires on our only vehicle. All of these different expenses have made it a lot harder to take care of our monthly bills, so I'm humbly asking for help with our gas bill. we've fallen behind on it, and I'm worried that it could be shut-off in a matter of weeks.

With this help, we'll be able to keep using our gas for cooking and heating, allowing us to remain in our home comfortably. These past few months have been difficult for us, but I'm still working and am confident that we can remain self-sufficient going forward with this very generous assistance. Words truly cannot express the positive impact this kindness would have on our lives, and I would just like to say thank you to everyone who helps us through this difficult period.
