I'm an Essential Worker Struggling to Keep My Gas on Through the Winter! Please Help.

My Story:

I'm a single woman, and I live with my 4-year-old Pekingese puppy. When I'm not working, I love to spend time relaxing with him, but currently, I've been staying pretty busy while working at a local hospital as an essential worker and while going through school to become a nurse. I love my job, and I'm working hard to get my nursing degree so that I can continue to work at the hospital and serve my community while also putting myself in a better position financially.

Since I became independent, I've pretty much always worked in healthcare in one form or another, so I truly feel passionate about the work that I do. In fact, before the pandemic, I was working for the American Red Cross assisting with their blood donation program. As the country became increasingly weary of the pandemic, blood donations began to drop. Alongside that phenomenon, I began to lose hours. I slowly went from working 50 to 60 hours per week all the way down to 20 to 30 hours per week. Without my regular hours at work, I started to fall behind on my bills and decided that I had to change jobs. Thankfully, I found work at the local hospital doing something that I love, but even though I'm employed full-time now, I'm having a difficult time catching up on some of the bills that I fell behind on. Right now, I'm months behind on my gas bill, and I'm worried that it's going to be shut off during the winter, causing me to lose my only source of heat. So, for that reason, I'm humbly asking for assistance with catching up on my overdue gas bill.

With this help, I'll be one step closer towards getting back on track with all of my bills again. Most importantly though, I'll be able to keep my heat on during the winter, and I'll be able to continue to cook as well. This would be a huge burden lifted off of my shoulders, and I promise to never forget the kind and generous people who gave me the chance to finally get back on my feet. Thank you in advance for this assistance.
