I wish I wish for/need household necessities and maybe some fuel for my vehicle for upcoming appts
Hello all. This wish is for basic needs for my family (including 2 kids, ages 4 and 10) to help us get by.
Things have been very tight for my family the last year, with it getting worse recently. My husband’s employer went from working him 60 hours a week to not even 40 hours a week. We seriously depend on his overtime. We’ve received help with food from the food bank but they don’t offer things like laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, paper towels or anything of that nature. Unfortunately we are nearly out of these items and when the check hits the account it is already gone. We have a power bill that is close to $300 that has to be paid or it will be cut off. We have so much more to pay out, and just not enough money to go around. I don’t even know if I will be able to put fuel in my vehicle to get my oldest to and from the several doc appts and such that she had coming up. (Recently diagnosed with asthma which is causing anxiety attacks.)
My husband drives a hour to work (1 way) each day, which costs a ton in fuel. By the grace of God we are making it through this week, but barely. If he doesn’t have fuel to get to work then he loses his job. (Long story but he is the only one that drives that far in his personal vehicle. They promised him a $2/hr raise, a work truck and a company card for fuel after 90 days. Well, he has been there almost a year and there was only a $1 raise given, and no company vehicle. Not even an offer to help him cover his fuel. This is a very stressful situation, especially considering his vehicle is having transmission issues.
If anyone would be willing to help with anything it would be greatly appreciate it. I don’t expect cash or anything like that. Heck, we can even do site to store shipping to avoid shipping costs. Gift cards are welcome but not expected. I will gladly show receipts to prove these items have been purchased. Also, some sort of gift card for fuel would be an absolute lifesaver. I also have a PayPal but would prefer not to receive cash as I don’t want any doubt as to what the funds are being spent on.
Do to sensitive skin we can only use tide simply clean and fresh. It is the only thing that we can all use without problems. There is a giant bottle of it on Walmart dot com for about 8 or 9 bucks. As far as paper towels, I’m not particular. I usually get the family dollar soft and strong but there’s a 6 pack or Viva on Walmart’s site for around $6. As far as dishwasher detergent, I buy whatever is cheapest in the liquid or pod form. Usually it is the Palmolive ECO brand because that is what is cheapest. I found a 2 pack of that on Walmart’s site for around 5 or 6 bucks. Toilet paper is whatever is cheap but soft. With 3 girls in the house (me and our 4 and 10 y/o) we go through TONS of toilet paper. As far as fuel goes, we have a Texaco & Exxon close by. I also have a Sam’s Club membership, which is the cheapest place in the area to get fuel.
If anyone would be able to help with any of these items, even 1, it would be of great help and deeply appreciated. I will definitely pay it forward once things level out a bit.
Thank you for your time and consideration. 🙏💛
