This person has left the following thank you note:

Hello donors, I just wanted to tell you all how much of a blessing this is to me and my family! Thank you so much for giving and not only thinking of yourselves. I pray that the blessings are returned to you and God bless you. This decision will change our life by us not getting evicted and will really help us catch up so that we will never be in this situation again.

With My Kids Home Due to COVID, Our Expenses Have Gone Up, & I Need Help with Rent Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mom with two wonderful children at home, and I work full-time in order to provide for them. The pandemic forced them to stay home from school and forced me to work remotely. While it's definitely been a blessing to be able to spend more time with my children, it's also caused our expenses to go through the roof. I'm doing what I can to get by, and I've even picked up some gig work on the side doing deliveries and Uber, but nothing has been enough to get us current on our rent and other bills.

Having my kids home from school and working remotely has caused our expenses to increase significantly. We're home all the time, so our electricity bill and heating bills were higher, and we have to spend more on food as well because my children typically eat two out of three meals per day at school. On top of that, I have to try to work and care for my kids at the same time, so that means that I've had to miss some hours at work to make sure my children are taken care of and are keeping up with their schoolwork. I'm having a hard time keeping up with our rent, so I'm humbly seeking help before we lose our home.

Without help, we're definitely going to come up short on our rent this month. I have to keep a roof over my children's heads, and I've fought hard to do that and have picked up extra work where and when I could, but nothing has been enough. I'm deeply afraid of being evicted because my kids and I don't have anywhere else to go. They rely on me for their care and stability, and to not be able to deliver that for them would be devastating as a mother. With that being said though, we would be able to get right back on track with this generous assistance, and I'll be able to save and make sure we don't fall behind like this in the near future. Thank you in advance to everyone who assists us with keeping our home. We'll never forget the kindness and generosity we're shown.
