COVID Relief

COVID has nearly killed Connecticut restaurants. My income as a bartender is currently less than when I was first furloughed and collecting unemployment.

While I recognize that many of us are struggling, I also recognize that, unless I ask for help, I will not receive it. 

I am reaching out for financial support for bills, food, and to keep my pets healthy. I am also grateful for side jobs & job opportunities available. Please contact me if any of this sounds possible. 

I am asking for $3500 to cover rent, bills, registering & insuring my vehicle, as well as vet bills & everyday needs for my two cats and the cat I am currently fostering. 

It feels as though the rug was pulled out underneath me. For a while, we were getting busier at work, but suddenly, everyone is so afraid of leaving their homes & my below minimum wage hourly is not paying the bills. 

I need help. I’ll take it in any form. This isn’t easy.
