Single mom needs help. Donations will be used to relieve the stress of a single mom raising three kids on a poverty budget.

Hardworking single mom of three, struggling to have the basics. Employed in a severly underpaid career. Trying to meet the basic needs with paychecks that don't stretch.

Small family survived verbal, emotional, and physical abuse yet finding it difficult to survive day to day.

Recently had the electric turned back on, but the past due balances are overpowering. We are about to run out of heating oil, which means no hot water. Every month it's; electric versus food, school supplies versus medication.

(Unsafe) Car in need of many repairs, including a tire that has been mended with duct tape. But, the car makes the 300 mile-a-week trek back and forth to work, on time.

Over stressed, underpaid, and trying to feed the family. Renting a place with structural damage, broken windows, and an electrical system from the 1930's. Wanting a better home some day, but with no child support and a yearly income that just dropped $7,000, every dollar is spoken for.

It's heart-breaking not to be able to get things the kids need, such as a new pair of jeans. They miss out on so many small things that a lot of kids take for granted.

Heart-related health issues compounded by mounds of stress, causing more health issues. Child with seizure disorder and one requiring dental surgery, adds more unpaid bills not covered by insurance.

As an independant strong-willed woman, I'm swallowing the pride, and asking for help.

Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated.
