Need help with rent and food

I'm a single mother of one school-aged child. 

With Covid, the uncertainty of when you have to pull a child from school/daycare really is a scary thought. I take public transit but unable to find a job that will allow me to get to the school or daycare within an hour to pick up my daughter. If she has a cough or headache they send her home. I'm in the process of starting my own business so we no longer have to worry. In the meantime, we are facing eviction and homelessness. 

I was able to make enough to cover this month but next month is going to be even tighter with funds. I'm unable to get a loan or line of credit due to being in a consumer proposal. If I miss another payment I have to start over and chances are will have to go to court. 

I've been trying to sell my laptop and other household items but have had no luck. 

We also go to the food bank but you are only allowed to go once a week and I often starve myself so my daughter can be full. 

here's what the funds we receive will go towards (with proof and updates!):

1. Rent - to ensure we have a home.
2. Groceries - to get bulk so we can make things last.
3. A Bus Pass - This way I can get the Groceries. 

I'm embarrassed to be in this position and scared but I want you to know that whatever you give is going to help a family immensely!

If I'm unable to make rent and end up Homeless I will likely lose my daughter to the system I grew up in. It would mean the world to not have my daughter go through that same pain.

I want to thank you even if it's 5$ it really does mean a lot.

Thank you for hearing us out.
