AC went out and ran my electric bill way up. We're due for shut off.

Requesting: $415

Location: Avondale, AZ

Hi, our electricity bill is beyond my means. Our AC's pump froze up and we didn't know. We thought it was just getting hotter inside due to the outside heat. It's been slowly getting worse so we finally had to pay a tech to come out. It was indeed the pump. So now we're stuck with a 2 month electric bill and I'm the only one with income due to my husbands termination. My income is child support from my oldest daughter. The total amount due is $830.00. I am only asking for half because I don't feel comfortable asking for help at all. I have always been proud of being able to keep things together for my family. I have 3 children, 7, 10 and 12 years old. They told me that I could sell their toys and clothes to help with bills. That's when I decided to throw my feelings out and ask for help. Please, if anyone can help me, I need it badly. We are scheduled for disconnect in 11 days if I don't pay at least $415.00 by the 12th. I don't know what else to do, I've called all of my family, I've called local churches, local CAP program, and everyone is dry. I am virtually begging for any help I can get.

My husband and I had split up at the beginning of the year. I was living in my own apartment. In June, my apartment was robbed. My husband and I had already been trying to work out our issues and were getting back on track. After the robbery I didn't feel it was safe for me or my children so we moved home with my husband. His sister had been staying here helping while I was gone, but she never paid any bills or helped with rent. So when I came home I was hit with all utilities past due, rent past due, and my husband had been fired from his job after an injury 1 month prior. I receive $400/month child support for my oldest daughter. With that money I have managed to catch up on all bills until last months electric bill came, than car insurance, phone, gas, water and many doctor appointments took the last few child support payments. I have tried selling costumes that I've made over the past few years, old lawn equipment, a dirt bike, even my van. But have been unsuccessful in all aspects. And now we're 2 months on an electric bill that would take me 3 months at the least to pay it while my other bills get back out of hand.

Please, can anyone help with my situation. I will even donate whatever items I can to any charity I can in order to get help. I don't have cash, but I have material things. My husband landscapes and does junk removal if needed and can do this for someone if we can just please get help. All I am asking for, and I know it's a lot, is $415.00 to pay half of the electric bill so we do not get disconnected. I never wanted this to happen to me or my family, but now it has and now we need help. We help anyone we can whenever we can. Now I'm asking for help. Please will someone help us? I will give my APS account number if you want to just deposit it straight to the electric company. I posted a screenshot of my email showing my total amount due. I wanted to show proof that I am not lying about how much is owed and that I truly need help. I did not receive child support this week, and was told my payment for next week might not be there either due to my ex having to take a few days off. I'm in one of my worst predicaments ever. All I need is just this little bit of help to try and get me back on my feet. Thank you so much for taking time to read this. does not verify individual user claims for accuracy.
