Hi, my name is Jennifer and I’m a single mother of a 13 year old boy.
I’ve never done this before, however, I’ve found myself in a situation and after trying to get assistance through my community, to no avail, I’ve ended up here. I don’t know what else to do.
I’ve been waiting on my background check to come through, which I’m hoping will happen either today or by Monday so I can finally get back to work. I’ve been unemployed for a little over a month now. (I’ve been delivering groceries, etc. just to try to keep our heads above water.)
I met with the town trustees office yesterday to request help with my rent that was due on the first. Which I did receive, thank the Lord. However, they’ll only help you once a year so I can’t ask then to help with my car repairs.
I was intending on going to the Food Pantry, here in town yesterday but I never made it. My vehicle broke down on my way to court. I sat on the side of the road from @ 2:30 yesterday afternoon untill @ 7:30 yesterday evening. I needed someone to help me push my car off the road so it wouldn’t get towed.
My car is now sitting in someone’s driveway with a note on it asking them to please not have it towed and to call me if they needed it moved. I left my phone number and let them know I’d be there ASAP to pick it up. (Which I’ve NO idea when I’ll be able to do that.) Normally, I’d just call AAA roadside assistance and have them tow it. However, being that my car insurance has lapsed because I didn’t have the money to pay it, that resource is no longer available for me.
I have literally no one to help me. I don’t have any friends. I don’t talk to anyone really other than my son. My dad passed away December 6, 2014. Then, my mom passed away October 17, 2018. They were my son and I ‘s whole world. (I miss them every day.)
I am desperate to find anyone who’d be willing to help me at any compasity to get back on my feet.
I HAVE to get my car fixed so when they call me to go to work, I’ll be able to get there.
I now have NO means of making any money. I can’t deliver groceries, etc. without a vehicle. There’s no public transportation in my area.
I wasn’t able to get my son clothes or anything to start school with Tuesday. (I was able to get his school supplies.) He’s such a good boy and said, “it’s okay”. It’s NOT okay and I feel awful! This is the first time this has EVER happened.
So, here I am, asking for help from anyone who’d be willing to give it.
I am a good person, I’m a hard worker, I’ve just gotten into a spot I need help with to get out of.
Thank you, in advance, to anyone who’s reading this and is willing to help. (Any prayers you could give for us would also be greatly appreciated!)
Have a blessed day!
