My family has hit some hard times. I am not one to ask for help, but at this time and point I have no other choice. My husband lost his job and only gets SSI, which barely enough to pay the bills. We just got hit with an $358.00 plus $15 reconnect fee electric bill today that has to be paid or we will get our electricity cut off. We have been paying on the bill as much as we can, but it has caught up with us. Not only will we lose our food, but it is suppose to start getting colder and also worry about my kids. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
UPDATE! After calling the electric company numerous times, the amount we owe was lowered a bit, but still haven't came up with the money yet. The electricity was suppose to be cut off today, but luckily because of the cold weather, we got a break and it wasn't cut off. I am not sure, how long that will last as we have a couple more days of really cold weather and snow coming in.
