I've Had to Isolate Due to COVID 3 Different Times & I Need Help Catching Up on Our Electric Bill!

My Story:

I'm a divorced mother of four, and I also have two wonderful grandchildren. My youngest daughter is 12 years old, and she's the reason I keep pushing ahead; everything that I do, I do for her. She's a very sweet child, and I call her 'my little artist' because she's also very creative and talented. I work full-time for the city as an office support specialist, and I generally make enough for us to pay our bills relatively easily month to month.

The source of my current financial hardship is the fact that I've had to quarantine for extended periods of time I the past year. Each time I've done so, I've gone without pay for two weeks. These quarantines have caused a domino effect on our financial situation. First, it began when I fell behind on one of our bills; then, it got worse when that bill went to collections and my wages were garnished. After a large chunk of my wages were garnished, it became difficult to pay all of our other bills, and now we're in a very difficult situation. We're behind on our electric bill, and we're facing a shut-off soon.

I've picked up another part-time position that I will be starting soon, but in the meantime, I'm asking for assistance with our electricity bill because we'll lose our service before I can collect my first paycheck from my new position. I'll be able to manage our bills once I start working my other job, and I'll be able to rebuild our savings as well. However, I'm worried that we could lose our electricity before then. Your help would make a long-lasting impact on my family, and it would set a wonderful example for my daughter. We would like for her to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others, and we will use this as our inspiration to help others in turn. Thank you all in advance for your support and for the kindness and generosity you've shown us in our time of need.
