In Desperate Need of Getting our PG&E turned back on!!!

We had a roommate that lived with us for a few months. As roommates normally do, we divided different bills amongst ourselves to make sure that everything was paid on time. our former roommate had put the PG&E account under her name and we were giving her money every month for our portion of the bill for her to pay it. We had this arrangement for a little over a year. One day she decided to pack up and leave without saying anything. we did not think it would be that big of a deal until One afternoon, PG&E came and shut off our service, due to nonpayment. This roommate of ours was not paying The bill, and the account reached a negative amount of $1,200...our former roommate disappeared, and we (myself, my wife and 3 young boys...6, 2 and 5 months) are left with no gas (no heater, no hot water) and we definitely cannot afford to pay this outrageous balance to get the gas turned back on. It's getting colder and colder at night, we have to boil water and dump it into a bucket and bathe that way. It has made life for my family extremely difficult and uncomfortable for my little boys. I really don't like to ask ANYONE for anything and don't like to ask for help. But at this point in time, I'm just a desperate father, trying to make ends meet. I'm hoping to that some kind warm-hearted individuals find this cry out for help, and maybe lend my family a helping hand, before it starts freezing at night. Anything would help and we would be forever grateful for someone to save us this winter season. God Bless.
