Thank you so much to each and every donor who decided to help us with our situation. Words can�t relay how absolutely grateful I am to you and the hardworking people at Modest Needs for being there for us through our time of need. Without you I�m not sure how I would�ve made it through this. It�s people like you who make others such as myself want to be able to give back and because of your help I can and I absolutely will. I tried everything I could to get help and it was the help of strangers that got us through. Thank you so very much !!
After Taking in My Granddaughter, We're Struggling to Keep Our Only Vehicle!
I am a single parent to my beautiful granddaughter whom I love with my whole heart. She is very smart, sweet, and caring. She has gone through a lot after losing her mother to an illness. I promised her this year we would make great memories and have an easier time, but the year has started off badly. Yet, through it all she still smiles and melts my heart.
My granddaughter and I have had a hard year. Tragically, we lost her mother seven months ago to a sudden Aneurism. I was given custody of her, and financially, it's been very hard for us to get by in the wake of her mother's passing. We're now living paycheck to paycheck, and I'm having a hard time managing unexpected expenses. My job requires me to travel to different locations, and recently, my car had a manufacturer's error that resulted in an engine malfunction. It has yet to be repaired, as the parts are on backorder. I lost days of work because it was hard to get to the assigned area via public transportation and train. Then, I also was diagnosed with Covid-19 which caused me to lose nearly another week of pay. Soon after recovering, I later became ill a second time with a case of rebound Covid-19. At that point, I started to fall behind on all of our bills, and I'm having a hard time keeping our heads above water.
I'm very late on our car payment, and even though our vehicle is sitting in the shop awaiting the repairs that I paid for, it will be repossessed if I can't get caught up on it soon. Losing our only vehicle outright would be a devastating blow, and it's something I'm not sure we could recover from. With that said, we would be grateful for assistance with keeping it, as it would see us through this hardship and keep us going for a long time to come. After a difficult year, having our hope restored thanks to this help would carry us through the new year, and I know that it's something we'll never forget.
