After My Landlord Sold My Home, I Need Help Affording Moving Expenses Please!

My Story:

I'm 79 years old, and I've lived in Savannah for 40 years now. I have a special needs son who comes to visit me on the weekends, and I love spending time with him. I'm retired and not working, so I live primarily on my social security income and have little leftover for expenses outside of my month to month ones.

For ten years, I lived in a small home that I rented and loved. Recently, the owners decided to sell my home because the market has been so good, and now the new owners have given me 60 days to vacate. My dear friend, who I'm so grateful to, allowed me to live with her until I could find a new place for me to live. I've been staying with her since June, and the process of finding a new, affordable place to live has been extremely difficult; however, I finally made a breakthrough and will be moving into my new home in November. Still, I'm struggling to put together enough to move all of my belongings into my new home, and I don't receive enough from my social security to be able to afford movers and my rent. Falling behind on my rent would immediately put me in bad standing with my landlord, which I cannot afford to do. On top of that, most of my furniture and other belongings are in storage, and I can't afford to cover the cost of my storage unit alongside my rent, so in my current situation, I'm stuck having to choose between my new home and all of my belongings in storage.

I'm humbly asking for assistance with the cost of hiring movers so that I can get my stuff out of storage and stay in good standing with my landlord in the process. The past few months have been difficult, and it saddens me to have left my old home behind, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and am looking forward to getting settled into my new home. In the meantime, I would be very grateful to everyone who helps me reach the end of this hardship by offering me this extremely generous assistance. Thank you in advance for the kindness you have shown me in delivering me this much-needed assistance.
