I Lost My Job & Had to Stay Home with My Kids. Please Help Us keep Our Lights & Water On!
I'm a single mother raising my two wonderful daughters on my own. My oldest is 12 years old, and she's a very good student and is very responsible. She's very helpful around the house, and she is always there to help me with her little sister. My youngest daughter is 5 years old, and she's very energetic and creative. She loves her older sister more than anything and follows her everywhere. Raising them both on my own has been difficult, but I feel very blessed to have my daughters, and I work very hard to make sure they have everything they need.
When the pandemic began, I was working at a logistics company, but I was laid-off just a few months after COVID came along. I was able to get unemployment for a while, but I couldn't go back to work while both of my children were out of school and while daycares were closed. I've only just been able to start searching for work again, but I'm struggling to find anything that will work for my family. On top of that, we're really feeling the effects of inflation every time we go to the grocery store, and the rise in the cost of living has been difficult for us to deal with. I just burned through the last of my savings paying for a vehicle repair, and now I can't afford our utility bills for this month.
Keeping up with our utilities and avoiding a shut-off is very important to my family, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with our utility bills. Not only would this generous assistance keep our lights and water on, but it would also buy me more time to find work and it would help me cover our rent for this month too. For both of those reasons, I would be very appreciative of this assistance, and I promise to do my best to pay it forward in the near future.
