User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeGood morning!😀 My boys & I would like to thank all the donors as well as Modest Needs for helping us in our time of need. Without the help from you ' Our new friends' we would have not been able to keep our energy on. We plan to pay it forward. Again thanks for your effort and support. God bless all of you.

After Getting COVID, I Can't Catch Up on Our Electric Bill. Please Help!

My Story:

I'm a father with three boys at home to take care of. They're all fairly close in age at 13, 12, and 10 years old, and they love playing sports, mostly football and boxing, and they also enjoy playing video games together too. In order to support them and build a career, I started apprenticing for an attic insulation company. I like it so far, and I'm hoping that I can keep working to get my certification soon.

Lately, things haven't been easy for us, and we're struggling to keep up with our finances from month to month. A week and a half ago, I caught COVID, and I still haven't been allowed to return to work. We've slowly been falling behind on our energy bill since then, and during the summer here it's always fairly high, so it's especially hard to deal with. I've been able to get a short extension on the bill, but I need help paying it before our electricity is turned off. I'm humbly seeking assistance with this electric bill so that we can stay safe and cool in our home during the Arizona summer. My children and I would be very grateful for this help, and it will keep us cool while also buying me the time that I need to get back to work. Once I'm back at work, I'll be able to keep up with the rest of our bills for the foreseeable future. Until then, thank you to everyone who lends us a hand with this electric bill, and I promise that we will find a way to repay the generosity we're shown.
