Lost job and need help

So 40 doesn't seem to be my year. A couple months after losing my dad, I lost my job. Turns out I do not qualify for unemployment because of the type of job I had. Been able to scrape things together for the past few months while looking for a new job, but although I have made it to the final step in the hiring process a couple of times, I haven't been able to find work yet. And I have come to the end of the line in terms of scraping things together. Just need a little bit of help until I can get back on my feet again. Just looking to raise enough money to pay for my rent that is past due and my electric bill, since they turned that off this morning. I am incredibly embarrassed to be in this situation and would not even be doing this if someone hadn't suggested it to me. It did not even cross my mind. I have things set up to start delivering food for like Uber Eats and Door Dash, (just like in my college days), but honestly need gas money to even get started on that. I also have a few little side jobs set up, helping people move or pet sitting, but they are a little bit into the future and won't help in time. Every little bit helps and thank you in advance for any help you can give.
