Thank you guys so much for helping me and my family! Without you guys, this wouldn't have been possible at all! I didn't know where I was going to run to for help, Modest Needs and the donors was a huge blessing to me and my family. I'm sitting here tearing up because my day at working was going bad until I got an notification in my email with the title 'Modest Needs application status.' I was kind of nervous to open this email because I didn't know what to expect to be honest lol but you guys made my day wonderful I couldn't thank you guys enough! Thanks again Modest Needs and donors for this blessings!
I'm a Single Father Struggling due to the Pandemic! Please Help Me Keep Our Utilities on!
I'm a single father, and I have four children, but only one of them lives with me full-time. My oldest son is 16, and he enjoys track & field. I have twins (girl/boy) who are 12 years old. The twins enjoy football and world history. My youngest child lives with me, and he's just 4 years old. He enjoys all things having to do with cars, especially Hotwheels.
I work hard for my children, and through the pandemic, I've worked as a floor technician at the local hospital. It's only on a part-time basis, but when I lost my other job to the pandemic, I knew I had to do something to stay on my feet. The job that I'm working now only covers most but not all of the household expenses, so I fell behind on mortgage payments and my utilities. I also had to take time off work throughout the pandemic to watch after my children while they did virtual learning, and that caused me to fall behind on my mortgage payments a few times, so I'm already on thin-ice there. I'm trying to find a second job, but I'm worried that I won't be able to work it because cases are on the rise and schools might close down again. So, I'm humbly asking for help with catching up on my utilities so that I can keep my service on.
This will be huge for me and my kids! It will help me get back on track for sure, and back to a current balance instead of constantly being past due. I'll finally be able to focus on building a future for my children instead of just worrying about how to survive day to day. I would be so thankful for this assistance with keeping my lights and water on, and I will never forget this act of generosity.
