I want to say thank you to all that has helped. This has helped keep the lights on during the holidays and it means alot to not having to worry that it's going to be shut off during Christmas. We really appreciate everyone that has helped with one of the stresses. Now our family can enjoy Christmas and the kids can enjoy playing and eating. Thank you again.

I'm a Truck Driver, & My Semi Needed So Many Repairs That I Lost Hours. Now I Can't Pay Utilities!

My Story:

I am a married father of 5 children, and we care for my mother-in-law also. I am a full-time truck driver that drives from Ohio to New York City every night. It's a long and difficult trip, but it puts food on the table and keeps a roof over our heads.

Right now, we're struggling, and I am asking for help because my semi-truck has been going through a series of mechanical breakdowns. As a result, I have lost a lot of hours at work, and I am currently not making enough money to cover my family's expenses. Because I haven't been able to make my deliveries, we're dangerously close to having our water and power shut-off in the middle of winter. Please, we need assistance with our past due utility bills.

This one-time assistance with my family's electric/water bill would be a huge help. We are starting to get shut off notices, and in a matter of weeks, the utility company will follow through on these notices. This support would keep us going until I can get my hours back now that my semi has been repaired, and I know we can stay on track now. Thank you for your consideration and time.
