I am beyond ecstatic for the kindness all of you have shown! Your generosity means the world to me!! They say it takes a village to help others in need and my goodness did you truly pull through and make that happen. I will be forever grateful to all of you, including Modest Needs, and wish to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for helping me in my most desperate plea for help! I was over the moon elated when I opened the email stating that my application was fully funded and I honestly felt like I was dreaming while reading it. I prayed for this to come to fruition and it sure did just in the nick of time! :) As soon as I am able to get back on my feet, I will be paying it forward many times over. Thank you again so much!! God bless you all!!! Very Sincerely, Ms. Giampa

I'm on the Verge of Losing My Home & Need Help Relocating Please!

My Story:

I'm a single female living on my own, but I do have an adult daughter who lives on her own out of state. I work as an independent contractor, and I've really struggled due to the pandemic. My income has basically been cut in half, and on top of that, my landlord has decided to raise my rent as well. He's raised it by $75 already and is planning on raising it more when my lease expires at the end of the year.

My income hasn't been able to keep up with the rising cost of living in my area, and with my landlord raising my rent, things have become almost impossible to manage here. I can barely afford to even keep enough food on the table for myself and have experienced a drastic, dangerous decline in my weight as well. In order to even just get by, I've been selling things, but I've reached the point where I'm out of things to sell. My savings was also wiped out earlier this year because my cat was very sick, and I needed to pay for vet bills to make sure he recovered. Also, my car is on its last legs, my utility bills are behind, and I've pretty much just run out of options. My only way out is to move back to Pennsylvania where I was born, raised and lived most of my life. However, I can't afford to pay for a U-Haul to get me and my belongings there, so I'm seeking assistance with that expense.

I fear I will be homeless if I cannot make it back to Pennsylvania. That's my biggest concern right now, so I would feel very relieved to get assistance with this move. I'll finally be able to get back on my feet again, and once I do, I'll work towards repaying the kindness and generosity I'm shown. Thank you all for this assistance in advance.
