Wanting to get caught up...

Bctinkerb, Florida

I would like to start by saying thank you to those who are willing to donate to those in need! I am a single mom to an 11 year old son. I lost my job in October, 2010, and I have not been able to find work yet. I have done some odd jobs here and there, including online work. I sold my van, used my taxes and utilized every means available...and now the money has run out. My son needs me to be there for him, as he is having a lot of emotional issues this year. His behavior in school, and after, has caused a lot of disruption in our lives, making it difficult for me to look for a regular 9-5 job, not that there are any available either. I do not have family close by, and he needs the one-on-one attention right now. After I lost my job, I decided to go back to school to get an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. Financial Aid is taking care of my school right now. The thing that we need help with is the rent and groceries (he's growing and eating, eating and growing - over 2 inches in just 2 months!). I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer that will cover the necessities for the next 2 or 3 months. As I said before, I am doing some online work which pays less than minimum wage, but I am hoping that this will give me the opportunity to get caught up. God Bless.
