First and for most, I would like to thank everyone in advance for their donations, prayers, and kind words.
My husband and I don’t usually ask for help; however, along with covid-19, we had to gain custody of our 4 grandchildren due to neglect and abuse. We had to seek legal custody via lawyer and this has caused us to deplete our savings and retirement. We have mortgage payments ($1450/mo), utilities ($700/mo), had to get another car to accommodate the children (550/mo) along with additional expenses. Now we are having issues with our roof leaking, plumbing and mold…its seems that when it rains it truly pours. Both my husband and I work full time but unfortunately we are living paycheck to paycheck now. We love our grandchildren and by no means are we complaining; however, we have gotten behind on much of our bills because again, we have been living paycheck to paycheck. When covid hit..my husband was laid off and I continued to work because I was considered an “essential” worker. Unfortunately, this caused me to catch covid twice forcing me to leave employment and leaving me medically distressed because I was terribly, terribly sick for months. With all the misfortune, we continued to work hard to maintain our home and family without the assistance of welfare or support. We ask for assistance now because we are in dire need because school has started for the children and they need clothing and supplies, we still have bills that we are trying to catch up with, and our home is in desperate need of repairing and we still have legal fees that has to be paid. We are asking for donations, advice, support, resources to assist us in our time of need. All and everything would be much appreciated. If you can help us reach our goal of at least $10,000 or more that would help us out tremendously.
Thanks again for the time and support.
