After Missing Work Due to an Injury & COVID, I Need Help Keeping Our Lights on!

My Story:

I'm a part time college student, and I love to work hard and participate in as many school activities as I can. When I'm not working at my full-time job, I help take care of my mother and my little, 11-year-old sister. My mother works incredibly hard at a fruit-packing company, so I try to help her with my little sister as much as I can. My family is the most important thing in my life, and I will always do whatever I can to support my mom and my little sister because they do the same for me as well.

My hardship really began when I fractured my foot this past summer and had to stop working as a result. I had to go on short-term disability, but my job at Amazon refused to accommodate me, so I'm really struggling now. Right when I was about to be able to return to work, I contracted Covid-19 and had to isolate. I haven't had any income whatsoever for the past few months and am really struggling to pay my bills. My whole family is really struggling, and right now, my biggest concern is that our power is going to be shut off unless we can catch up on our electricity bill.

Getting this help would be a huge blessing to my family, and it couldn't come at a better time for us. My mom and I are both heading back to work after testing negative for COVID, but I'm worried we could lose our power before that happens. However, with this help, we'll be able to return to work while keeping our lights on, and from there, I know we'll be able to stay on our feet. In the meantime, my family would be so thankful for this assistance with our electric bill, and I would like to thank everyone who lends us a hand in advance for your compassion and generosity.
