Need Help Until I Start New Job

Help with, Iowa

Hello, I lost my job back in April and have been working as an independant contractor to bring in money while I look for fulltime work. I am now behind on bills and if I don't come up with $400 but next Tuesday my lights will be shut off. I have nothing else left of value to sell or pawn. I am starting a fulltime job at the end of the month but need help keeping the lights on until I receive my first paycheck. Any help would be appreciated.
