We Had to Relocate Due to a Dangerous Living Situation! Please Help Us Keep Our Lights on!
I am a single mother of two wonderful children. My daughter has provided me with a wonderful and beautiful granddaughter, and I'm so thankful for them. My son is 13 years old and is in 8th grade. He loves to play computer games and be outdoors playing basketball with his friends. I work full-time as a parking enforcement associate at the local university. In addition to that full-time job, I also work part-time as a manager at a restaurant. Between those two jobs, we still just barely earn enough to live from paycheck to paycheck, and that's made it hard to deal with the emergency that we're facing right now.
Right now, we're struggling because we had to relocate to a new home for fear of our safety. My living situation at my previous residence was not safe, as there was constant vandalism to my car and property. I decided I had to move, but to do so, I had to break my lease. I had to pay to break that and lost my security deposit of around $2,100. Losing that on top of paying for moving expenses has been very difficult for my family to handle financially. As a result, we've fallen behind on our electric bill, and we're facing an imminent shut-off.
I'm very humbly asking for assistance with catching up on our past due electric bill, as I fear that if it's not paid soon, we'll lose our electricity. I'm a breast cancer survivor, and I also struggle with Bell's Palsy, so keeping our electricity on is really important to my health. With that said, I want to thank everyone who lends us a hand with this vital bill, and I promise that I will find a way to pay your generosity forward to another family in need.
