Thank you so much for your donations. I was in a very bad spot, but the aid that I am receiving will help me to get back on my feet, keep a roof over my head, and aid my elderly mother who is still battling the after effects of covid. You have no idea how much this truly means to me. I had lost all hope of receiving help. Thanks to Modest Needs, and the generous donors I finally feel I have a chance. I feel like I have dignity. You guys are truly life savers!:)
I Was Working For a COVID Vaccine Trial Program, but that Ended. Now, I Need Help Please!
I am a disabled person trying to re-enter the workforce while supporting my family. I help to take care of my elderly mother and younger sister, who are suffering from the neurological after effects of COVID. In my free time, I enjoy reading and cooking, as well as playing board games and watching classic films.
As I mentioned earlier, I'm disabled and am trying to re-enter the workforce. I managed to get part-time work as a data entry clerk, but I was laid off in January of 2022. Both my elderly mother and sister suffer from the neurological after effects of COVID, and are unable to work. As a result, I have been struggling with paying rent, food, medicine and utility bills for my family, and I am now two months behind on almost everything. I still haven't found work, and I desperately need help if I'm going to make it through this crisis. I cannot qualify for food stamps because I was barely over the financial limit to qualify. I have gone from organization to organization only to be turned down. I haven't even received a stimulus check, and am not going to according to the IRS. I am trying to support three people with no funds, and it is taking a toll on my mental health.
Right now, my biggest concern is with being able to pay my internet bill. It's the only way I've been able to search for work, and if it's shut-off, my job search will come to a halt. Getting help with this bill will give me a chance to keep searching for work, and hopefully I'll be able to find a job soon so that I can get back to being self-sufficient. Thank you all in advance for this assistance with my internet bill, and I promise that I will do my best to pay your kindness forward.
