At the onset of the pandemic, two friends began struggling to make ends meet. They were both laid off from their jobs due to budget cuts, shortages, and the company’s inability to continue to employ employees. For a time, they were able to utilize the PPP governmental program assistance, until this aid ran out. They were able to sustain themselves and pay rent through the tough summer months by taking on Instacart jobs whenever and wherever they could. However, as hard as they tried, that money too began to run out. That’s when they came to us for help to cover August and September’s rent so they could save enough from odd jobs here and there to make it until they can find more steady employment. Here at The Sharing Center, because of the generosity of friends, neighbors, and strangers alike, their August, September, AND October’s rent was paid. Tears rolled down their cheeks in gratitude for those who shared their generosity and compassion with them. There is power in community helping to pave the path to stability. Without this support, the two friends could quite possibly experience homelessness – something all of us can help prevent.
