In need of a helping hand
Organized by: Alexis Cornwell
Hello everyone, and thank you for taking the time to read this. My name is Alexis Cornwell, I am a mommy to a beautiful little girl and married to my wonderful husband. We both work very hard to support our child but have fallen on some hard times. My husband is in the US Army Reserves and recently was gone for 6 months, since he came home he is struggling to find work, but thankfully found a job this week! Unfortunately we are without our own home, and have been staying with my parents whom are also in a bad financial state. I work in an MRI unit on top of running my own business but my income isn't enough. We have found ourselves in a position we never thought we would be in, struggling to buy our child diapers and milk every week.. We have been trying to move out for a few months now but with childcare on top of bills, and trying to save for a deposit plus first months rent is nearly impossible in our situation. This is a last ditch effort for us to have to ask for help like this. We are in desperate need of our own apartment, we currently share 1 bedroom with our 2 year old in my parents apartment. The money would be used for a deposit/first months rent on an apartment along with the essentials needed to move in (pots and pans, dishes, silverware.) If we had any extra it would be saved toward us trying to get a new car, we currently drive a 1995 Chevy S10 that is not safe to transport our child in. I just ask that you could find it in your hearts to help us in anyway possible, and I would like to take the time to thank everyone in advance for any help given to us. You have no idea how much of a tremendous help you are to our family, God bless each and every one of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, The Cornwell family.
