we desperately need help raising money to pay our water bill
Organized by: Syreeta Palmer
Hello everyone, my name is Syreeta and a friend told me about this website to help raise money. I really need everyone's help please because my family and I have until November to come up with almost $1,000 to pay the water bill here at Lily Flagg station. I know you're all thinking wow that is ridiculous high for water and you're right Lily Flagg Station Apartments is a hellhole to live at they charge SO money to live here and they just sit around and let this place fall apart and let anyone lives here because they can never keep any residents anymore due to the high water bill that nobody wants to pay because the water bill here is so high and you can't even drink it because it's disgusting and has an odor to it and they claim they fixed it, but it's not fixed at all. It's so bad that dogs won't even drink the water and this is the water that we have to bathe in wash dark clothes in as well. My mom and sister has broken out do to taking showers using this awful water. So the reason why we owe them so much is because my mom is on a fixed income and each month our water bill is over $100 and she pays whatever she can each month so every month she pays like I said whatever she can and the water bill keeps adding up and with the late fees in there as well. So finally one day when we came home we had an eviction notice on our door and saying we're going to be evict because of our outstanding water bill and if we don't pay it by November then they will kicks us out. So my mom is super stressed out and so am I and I hate to see her so stressed out trying to figure out how to come up with this money by November. Well she already paid them $200 already towards the water bill and she called them to make sure they got it and to let them know what her plan was and they told her since she's not able to pay the full amount that every time she pays them a little bit at a time that they going to charge her $20 extra for late fees can you believe that!? They're charging her double on late fees. The bill that they sent her it already included the late fees from the previous month and cuz she can't pay the whole thing all at once they are charging her $20 extra to split the payments up. So she asks family to help us out and her friends, but they don't have that type of money to help us out as well so I decided to try this and see if anyone could help us out so we can pay this bill. We really wish we can get out of this place asap, but we are stuck here for now because it actually cost more to move so we're hoping if they don't kicked out by November and when our next lease is up will have enough money saved up so we can get out of here as well. Today I watched two people load up their U-Hauls to get out of this place as fast as they can. One of my friend who is moving out she lives in the next building from me they couldn't wait till the lease was up so they broke their lease early so they can get far away from this place and this apartment charge them 3 times the rent to break their lease which I think is completely ridiculous. I know when you break your lease early they usually charge you at least one month rent to break your lease early, but not 3 months of rent. So if anybody can help us out I would greatly appreciate it and I know my mom would greatly appreciate it she doesn't know about this because I don't want to tell her and get her hopes up so if anyone can help us out and donate money to reach our goal then it will be a great surprise for her then she will have one less thing to worry about. So thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully you guys can pitch in and help us to reach our goal so thank you very much and have a blessed day.
