Rent Relief: $650

I was fine with my expenses, but an unforeseen event arose in my family. My child and I had COVID-19, and we were in isolation for 40 days. It’s what destabilized me economically as my partner and I could not work. If I could receive any help, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.

Car Payment: $333

I am three to four months behind on my car payment from a used car dealership in Reno, NV. I am around $1000 behind, and my monthly payment is $333 a month. I have a part-time job that pays the rent and gets my girlfriend and me food. But I continue to fall short on the car bill. We only have one vehicle so we cannot lose it. I’ll do everything in my power to catch up.

Car Repairs: $500

I lost my job at a restaurant many months ago due to covid so I had to take a job in the Carson Valley as I could not find work in Tahoe. My car is in need of some repairs in order to continue to travel up and down the mountain daily so I can maintain the car as long as possible. Any assistance in this time of need is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
