Hello. I am asking for help in paying my bills. We are a small family of 3. I am a before/after care school teacher and the next two weeks are winter break so I will be without pay and I was already hurting money wise because of missing a week from being closed for Thanksgiving break. My husband lost his job right before Thanksgiving and is trying to find work but has been unsuccessful. (He’s even put in for sign holding). We do not have any savings as every time we start saving something occurs that we have to use it up. I am on a biweekly pay period.
I am not asking for Christmas gifts or fun extra items though our tree has none. I am asking for help in keeping the basics going. Rent, water, and power. My internet has already been turned off which is hindering job searching. Yes, we know of the library but they charge to use the net as we are out of county and there’s a time limit. Lack of internet also hurts our daughter as she is virtually schooled. We are using it but the limitations make it hard to accomplish much.
My next paycheck will be this Friday, Dec. 21 for around $450. Power is $120 due on Dec. 28, water $90 due on Dec. 19, December Rent is still unpaid and final notice is Dec. 28 for amount of $721. Car insurance is due to be paid for $230. My internet will take $200 to put back on, though we are trying to find a cheaper way of gaining access to it. All of my paycheck will be goimg to pay bills and putting food on the table.
We called 211 and was directed to a couple of charities but they all said their budget for the month was used and could not help us at this time. So I beg out to you: Please help us.
I have uploaded the picture of my rent statement. My other bills are done paperlessly so I am unsure how to upload them to here.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any help you are willing to give.
