We just want heat for Christmas

My name is Chaundrah, and like so many others, my family was impacted this year by so many things. I lost my job in late February after I contracted the flu. Soon after COVID hit and finding a job was nigh impossible. Summer rolled around and my mother had a stroke, pretty much forcing her into early retirement. Once it started getting cold, we discovered our furnace/boiler was throwing out carbon monoxide and pretty much out of commission. I was finally able to find work at the end of Nov but it doesnt pay enough to get a new furnace installed.  We dont qualify for financing and I've looked into grants and anything else I could think of to no avail. I'm not asking for a lot. Whatever you can give is greatly appreciated. Even if you can only share, that's appreciated too.. I don't want much. I just want us to have heat this winter.
