We Live Paycheck to Paycheck & Need Help Keeping Our Lights on After I Missed Work!

My Story:

I'm a single mom, and I also work full-time and go to school part-time as well. My foremost goal right now is to get my degree so that I can move up in my career. However, my daughter and I are struggling right now because we live paycheck to paycheck. We're living on an extremely tight budget, and I can't afford to miss even a few days of work. Unfortunately, I recently had to take three days off of work because I was too sick to go in, and now I'm struggling to catch up on our bills. Specifically, I can't afford our electric bill, and I'm worried that if we fall behind, we'll have our power shut-off.

I'm very humbly asking for assistance with our electric bill because after missing work, I can't afford our bill for this month. We're living paycheck to paycheck, so falling behind on just one bill can really throw us off, and it could cost us everything down the line. I'm doing the best that I can to find some stability for my daughter and I, and I'm hoping to complete my degree soon. In the meantime though, we need help with our electric bill if we're going to keep going. We would be very grateful for the assistance that we receive, and I would like to thank everyone who helps us with this electric bill in advance.
