After Missing Work Due to COVID, I'm About to Lose Our Only Means of Transportation! Please Help!
As a single mother and the sole provider for my family, my two youngest children rely completely on me to take care of their needs. In order to do that, I work a full-time job, as well as two less than part-time jobs. In addition to our household bills, I also help my oldest child, who is in college, with their school expenses. I'm doing the best that I can to keep them in school, but the expenses have started to pile up, so it's been difficult.
Though, the biggest blow to our finances came when I caught COVID for the second time last month. I had to isolate for a week, and after already being behind on some of my bills, I lost out on a whole half of a paycheck. I was struggling to support my children in school, but now, I'm having a hard time of catching up on some of our most crucial bills. It feels like my family is about to crack under the stress of our financial situation, and I'm really worried about the effects that it's having on my children. As their mother, I need to be able to help them, but I know that I can't do it on my own. That's why I'm very humbly seeking assistance with one of our most major bills, our car payment.
We're having a hard time covering almost all of our bills, but keeping our car is imperative to the success of my family. Without it, I can't go to work, and I can't get my kids to and from school. Simply put, this assistance would be a tremendous source of strength for my family, and it would give us an opportunity to come back from this short-term setback without it turning into a long-term cycle. I've already made plans to start working a second, full-time job this month, and if I'm able to keep my car till then, I'll be able to get my family back to a point of relative stability again. We would like to thank everyone who lends us a hand for your extremely generous support. I promise that my children and I will never forget this.
