Thank you soooo much for helping me and my family in our time of need. I am more than grateful for the assistance provided.

I was Out of Work Recovering From Surgery & Need Help Keeping Our Lights On Please!

My Story:

I'm raising three beautiful children all on my own as a single mother. They're all still fairly young at just 9 years old, 3 years old, and 6 months old, so caring for them on my own can be difficult, but I've always fought hard to provide for them. I work full-time as a customer service agent, but I recently had to take a leave of absence from work due to some medical issues.

At first, I didn't think that I would be out of work for very long and thought that we could get by with our savings. However, I ended up having to have surgery to correct the medical issues I was having, and that kept me out of work for much longer than I expected. On top of that, I wasn't paid at all during my leave of absence, so we burned through our savings pretty quickly. As a result, we fell behind on a lot of our bills, and we're struggling to catch up on our electric bill in particular.

We're facing an imminent disconnection, and so I'm asking for assistance with our electric bill, please. Even though I'm working again, I'm really afraid that we're going to have our lights shut-off before I can catch up on our electric bill. However, with this help, I'll be able to get caught up, and we can get back on our feet again. My children and I would be so grateful for this assistance, and I promise to repay the help we receive someday soon!
