I Haven't Had a Nutritious Meal in Months Because I Can't Afford to Replace My Stove! Help!

My Story:

I am 53 years old and work as a security control officer at a defense plant in southern Arkansas. I have a 25-year-old daughter that lives about 45 minutes away from me; she lives with her husband and my 4-year-old granddaughter.

I have been using an electric skillet and my microwave since my stove went out two months ago. I cannot prepare any nutritious meals using these two appliances. I have always enjoyed cooking and baking and would really love to be able to prepare nutritious dishes in my home again. Without this assistance, I cannot afford to purchase a new stove for myself due to a loss of income I experienced during COVID that I still have not totally recovered from. I am working full-time at a job that I truly enjoy, but I do not have it in my budget to afford an emergency expense such as this one.

I am requesting assistance with purchasing a new electric range with oven. This act of kindness would restore so much happiness and health into my life. I could finally cook again and care for myself properly as I age. Thank you so much.
