My family, which is my husband and my 2 beloved dogs Roderick ( 2 years old) and Madeline ( 9 years old), are in need of some help to keep our apartment. Due to a corporate re-organization, they cut my husband's pay in August by over 25%. Since March when the pandemic really hit in full force and because he had recently started a new job with less pay and less hours we have been struggling until November. In the meantime we have had to try to live with what we received in the stimulus package and tried to stretch that as far as we possibly could. However, we have now received an eviction notice filed through the court system from our landlord giving us very 12 days to try and catch up on our rent or move out. We did not think that evictions were able to be filed due to CDC eviction moratorium as of yet but apparently they are because we've been given a date of January 12th on which we will have to appear in court. We also work from home and would lose our employment if we lose our apartment.If we can catch up the rent owed before that date, our landlord will allow us to remain here but it's just too much for us to make in that short amount of time with no savings left and not much coming in either, nor do we have enough to try to pay deposits and all that is required for a new place. We have tried getting assistance in other ways, through the programs that have been set up to help in these types of situations but we have been told by several that they can't do anything. I do not want to lose my home, my job and most of all my dogs who are my children. They do not deserve the cruelty of this pandemic nore Franklin County's recognition of the CDC Moratorium We are humbly asking for some help to be able to pay our landlord enough that he will allow us to remain where we are because otherwise our family will have nowhere else to go. Any help that anyone can give will be more than greatly appreciated, even if it's just a prayer and we thank you for even taking the time to read this campaign, we know it's difficult times for everyone right now. Thank you,
Ron and Maria Woodruff, Madeline, and Roderick.
