I want to thank each and every person who has contributed to help me during my time of need.

You all have made something possible that I wasn't able to do for myself. I hope the best for each and everyone and if you ever find yourself in need maybe next time it will be me contributing to help you.

I'm on the Verge of Losing My Power After Missing Two Paychecks! Please Help!

My Story:

I'm a recently separated 43-year-old woman, and I'm living on my own now. I love living on my own, and I love spending time with my young grandson. My son's wife has another one on the way too, and I'm very excited to meet our family's newest bundle of joy! When I'm not working, I'm spending all of my time with my grandchildren. Currently, I work in a call center for a telecom company, and I really love my job.

In April, I had to take a leave of absence from my job due to medical issues. Originally, I was on short-term leave with disability, but it took me over a month to receive my benefits. I fell behind as a result, and on top of that, my health has started to slip as well. For month now, I've been trying to transition to start receiving long-term disability benefits, but it's a long process. While I've been working when I can, I haven't been able to work enough hours to cover all of my bills. In fact, I haven't collected a check for the past two pay periods. In order to keep up with my rent and other bills, I had to sacrifice paying my electric bill, and now I'm over a month behind and am facing a shut-off.

I've done everything that I can to keep up with all of my bills, but after losing work, I need help if I'm going to be able to keep my lights on. Losing my power would be absolutely devastating, as I wouldn't be able to do my job or even see my grandson. He loves to come over and play here, and not being able to give him that space would break my heart. So, for his sake, I would be humbled and grateful for this assistance with keeping my electricity on.
