Hi, please forgive me because I’m an off work construction worker, because my employer’s company was hurt bad, from the virus that effects all of us if we catch it or not. So I’m not used to. Or never have had to do this before. In fact this is the first time I’ve ever seen or heard of this website. I stumbled on it out of desperation and lowering my pride. I’m actually typing this on a phone that I just had to drop plan on. So I hope my only 2 gigs of data don’t get used up while typing this. I’m a man named Kim after my father. I have a wife and 2 kids a boy and a girl 11 and 8.. I’m just a normal little under middle class family man. Who just a month ago was happy with working hard for the little things I have. And was proud of it. But since the virus my pride was shattered. My company I did drywall for went under. and my family’s income was cut to just my wife’s. Though hard we managed until a week after that when things took a further fall for the worst. My wife worked and hopefully will again for a very famous meat packing plant. That’s even more famous for now being on news constantly. And not in a good way. People at the plant started getting sick and the plant refused to shut down. Everyday she was still working was a complete nightmare. First hours was cut a day then cut 2. So the regular family that just got by on 2 incomes went to one and then to a 4 member family living off 3 days a week just enough where the company wouldn’t offer unemployment. But wasn’t enough to pay bills or live. Me and wife got sick we had symptoms but without her company testing in fear of shutting down the only 3 days we managed through it. The kids got slight coughs but didn’t seem to bother them so much. Thank God the sickness didn’t become what we all fear. But the worst part of virus is now really hitting home. We somehow pulled together our last months rent of $935 with an added late fee of $50 that they credited for the next month. But now with me still out of work and with the kids her company last week told her they would shut down for 2 weeks to clean meat processing plant with no pay. And they said filing for unemployment might not be option because. Work would pick back up for her. So now we are both out of work with rent due and no food. We have $400 to put towards rent or to eat. It could be up to a month before she gets back to work and I’m looking for a new job but I’m having a hard time. Being a self employed contractor makes it nearly impossible to get help from government. Our families worst fear is being homeless. I know I’m nobody special their are plenty of people in the same boat. It’s just so hard knowing everything we have worked for may soon go away over a virus nobody could control. I included a picture of past due notice like it asked when filling this out. But I didn’t want it to show to much information. But I am a real person with a real family that is struggling any help would mean the world to us.. it hurts my pride that I had to right this. God bless 🙏 we will get through this.
Thank you. https://www.paypal.me/Kimherman
