This person has left the following thank you note:

I can not put into words how much you y'all have blessed my family.It has been challenging being a single mother to my daughter. I try to do my best to provide a stable home and environment for her. Just knowing that there are people that care enough to lean me a helping hand when all becomes to much of a burden. Just the other I had to get my daughter tested for COVID-19 and the results came back positive. My job told me that I wouldn't get any leave pay because she didn't get it from my job. So I had crying and praying to God to make a way for my family to be ok. So when I say there isn't enough words I could say to truly show how thankful I am I mean that whole heartly.

I Lost Hours to COVID & Need Help Keeping Our Home While We Look to Downsize!

My Story:

I am a single mother of a 6-year-old daughter. She is such a lovely spirit with a silly personality. She has some challenges with her speech, so she has to take speech therapy as well as cognitive development therapy. I work hard to provide for my daughter as a full-time as a machine operator in a warehouse. Due to health reasons, my mother cannot work so she helps with my daughter so I can work full-time.

Recently I've experienced a significant reduction in hours at my job, and it's left my family really struggling to get by. I spent all my savings trying to cover the loss, so now we're living entirely paycheck to paycheck just to get by. I though that my hours would return to normal by this point, but so far, they haven't. Now, it's really difficult for me to keep up with our rent and other bills. I'm in the process of trying to relocate us to a cheaper apartment, but I'm behind on our rent currently and can't afford to move until we're caught up. We're right on the verge of being able to make it through this hardship if we can downsize, but I know that my family will need help to do that, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with our rent and electric bill.

Getting caught up on these two expenses would give me the chance to finally get back on top of our financial situation. We'll be able to afford to downsize, so that even if my hours never come back, we'll be able to pay our bills month to month. It'll also ensure that my daughter can stay in the therapy that she needs to continue to grow and develop. Having a stable financial situation is so important to her development, so as a mother, I would be extremely grateful to everyone who helps us get back on track.
