Most of you are aware that I am moving to Texas this summer after I finish at TCC for the spring semester. You are also likely aware that I was fired from Lowe's for medical absences.
Lowe's tried to
contest my eligibility for unemployment and I had an appointment with
the Unemployment commission for a phone interview on April 1st.
received two letters today, the first saying that I was eligible to
collect unemployment starting from March 6th which was when I initially
applied. This would have meant that I would receive backpay for the
weeks I have been looking for work. The second letter stated that I was
ineligible because my school schedule is too restrictive and does not
allow for full time work. Nevermind that I was working and doing school
in tandem until Lowe's fired me.
I am now truly out of options, and have set up a new GoFundMe for medical, living and moving expenses short term. I
know that I will end up safely in Texas, as I have been discussing with
my mother how best to go about the move, and we have been making plans,
but I am in need of funds for my medicine, and to restore cell service.
I actually need about $500 immediately to fill scripts for very
necessary medication that I will be out of this time next week, and to
buy food. This doesn't even bring into account that I need money for
rent, and moving and cleaning supplies so that we can leave our
apartment in good order.
This will be for living and moving
expenses for the next two months or so, until my roommates and myself
are safely in Tennessee, and then I head off to Texas from there.
have exhausted every resource that is available to me here in Virginia.
Any help is appreciated. I know that money may be tight for several
people reading this, and I understand that. If you could signal boost
that is also helpful.
We need about $500 right away for medicine
and food. We will need more for moving supplies (boxes, cleaning stuff,
etc) and to turn my phone back on. Every bit helps and we are all very
thankful for any assistance.
This is the GoFundMe! Please feel free to link back to this PUBLIC entry in the event that anyone wants verification that I am in fact a real person.
