I am requesting assistance for a pipe that has burst in my home and I don’t have the money to get this fixed.
I contacted a company about getting the pipe fixed and they are saying that I need to replace the plumbing to fix that problem.
My home is 100 years old and I have been in it for 66 years. I inherited it from my grandmother. I was actually born in this house and it has been my permanent address for my entire life.
I have just recently, within the last 60 days, had the roof replaced and the house tented, which restored much of the living conditions to comfortable conditions.
The house doesn’t have central air, and the central heating system is not working, however the most important thing to me currently is the plumbing.
The pipe that is broken in actually in the dining room area of the house and the pipe is leaking in the dining room.
Currently I am having to go out and turn the water on from the main source coming into the house and then turn it off after I have done what I need to do. Therefore, often this is in the night and in climate weather.
I am employed as a custodian in the Volusia County School Board as a custodian in one of the elementary schools and live in one of the most depressed neighborhoods in the county.
In this neighborhood, known as Mid-Town, the average annual income is $18,000. I am fortunate enough to be making $31,000 a year. The figure of $18,000 is from an article that was posted in the news feed of Google online.
I have been able to keep my bills current and to take care of my own personal effects very well so far. However, with this current emergency with the plumbing, I am not able to get the work done that I need to have done as it is unaffordable at this time.
Also, I am a senior citizen and have no savings to speak of, especially since the epidemic.
Due to the condition of the home, I have not been able to get homeowners insurance, and with the cost here in Florida the rates are currently unaffordable.
Any assistance that you could be in regard to this would indeed be greatly appreciated. I would like to thank you in advance for this assistance and what you do for people that are in need.
I am in Daytona Beach, Florida, my address is 640 Marion Street, my zip code is 32114. My PayPal is paypal.me/martintooley.
I currently am a one man Ministry that has assisted several people by teaching them Bible Studies and helping them to get GEDs and find them jobs, as well as, help some to start their own businesses. And I do all of this from this same house that is my home. I have no backing from any Ministry or Denomination. This is why I am currently in need of your assistance.
