Good Day! Donors My Store is one that is all to common in today's economy. The business that I work for is a small plumbing contractor and we were hit hard by the COVID-19 Pandemic and haven't quite gotten back up to full speed. Thus my office hours have been cut to about 2 hours a day, making it hard to make ends meet and pay any extra bills. I am a single mother of a grown child (who is a single father) that needed spinal surgery to remove a cancerous growth pressing against a nerve going to his right leg. This unexpected trip had put me even further behind. Thank you!!!!! So very much for the assistance in funding my request. It is a BIG relief off of my mind. Thank you again!!! MJ Schuetz

My Hours Were Cut in Half, & I Need Help Affording My Car Insurance Please!

My Story:

I'm a single woman, and I live on my own and work hard to support myself. Due to my age, my doctor discouraged me from working through the pandemic, so I have only been able to get back to work within the past year. As a result, my financial situation has been a little bit more tenuous than what I'm used to, and it's been more and more of a struggle to keep up with all of my bills as of late.

The reason it's been hard to keep up is mostly due to the fact that my hours have recently been cut down by my employer. My hours have been cut in half, and on top of that, my employer has gone from paying weekly to bi-weekly. That shift in schedule has made it difficult for me to keep up with some of my bills as someone who lives very much from paycheck to paycheck. Now, due to some unexpected expenses, I have been having to pick and choose what bills I can and can't pay. I recently had to drive a long distance to care for my son after he had an emergency spinal surgery, and it was a large expense. Now, I can't afford to cover my car insurance, and I'm worried that my policy is going to lapse if I can't catch up on the payments soon, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with that.

Making sure that I can drive my vehicle safely is a huge concern for me because it's the only means that I have to get to work, and if I have to care for my son again, the only way I can do that is using my car. On top of that, having assistance with this bill would make it far easier to manage my financial situation overall, as I would finally be caught up on my major bills. For all of those reasons, I want to say thank you to everyone who lends me a hand with catching up on my car insurance bill. I will be forever grateful to you all.
