I am on here asking for anyone who can, to help with a family in desperate need this holiday season. There is a family here that has fallen on very hard times this year. This is the kind of family who has always helped others regardless of if they knew them or not and now it seems that when they are in desperate need there is no one there to help them. This is why I have turned to here for help.
About the middle of October the wife lost her job. He works a full time job now and had received an offer on a second job. When his wife lost her job in October they pulled together all of their emergency funding to take care of their bills for the following month until his second job started and she was able to get another job. They had things figured out but they had not figured on another emergency. Around the time that she lost her job they received a phone call that there oldest son was involved in an accident that left him shot and in the hospital out of town. So, instead of being able to use the emergency funding to pay their bills for the following month they wound up using the funds to travel out of town to be with their son. This also caused for a two week loss of work on top of their expenditures. Now back home he is working both jobs however, there is not a lot of work and his wife has found and started her new job. The downside is that all of their bills from their rent, power, car, etc. has fallen behind and they are now in a position where they may lose everything. They are due to lose power this week. There landlords are saying that they can no longer hold on without the rent and the car company is constantly calling them asking for their money. They have posted everything up for sale that they have of value but that is not much. They don’t use cable or internet or any other "unnecessary items" as he puts it. They generally live a very simple life and so far it has worked for them. They have done a great job at not worrying their children on the issues that have been going on. They have started using the food bank when they can and have asked for help from assistance programs however, they use your previous income and they are telling them that they cannot help them at this time. This is sad since they have never used assistance before.
So, I ask that if there is anyone out there who can help to bring this family back up that would be great.
