I'm asking for a little help to cover some immediate expenses after exhausting all of our financial resources following a move. We will not have any additional income until I can find a part-time job, or until the end of August when we are due to receive anticipated refunds (security deposit from old apartment/return of overpayment to electric company/financial aid). Our needs are outlined below...

$35 for a full tank of gas for the car - the car is currently sitting on 1/8 a tank of gas so it is not being driven to conserve what fuel we do have. In order to look for a job I need gas in my car to submit job applications.

$35 - the cost of a bill that is due to be paid BEFORE July 22nd. If it's late a $50 late fee will be added to it. This is nearly paid off (credit account which I used to buy my wedding dress) so I don't want to have the late charge added and pull down my credit score (already missed a payment by a day and it dropped my score 10 points). I got this account to help establish my credit, not destroy it.

$25 - to purchase a pool pass so we can use the pool in our apartment complex to help us cool off in this heat. This is more of a want than a need, but it will be a welcomed activity for EVERYONE in the family since we're practically stuck at our apartment sweltering in this horrid heat.

We are good on food... we SHOULD be receiving some food assistance from the state in the weeks to come. All other household needs have been met as well. These are the only IMMEDIATE needs we have at this moment. We are also trying to sell some of our household possessions online through Facebook to help put more money towards this cause.

All donations received here are sent DIRECTLY to my PayPal account so we will have IMMEDIATE access to the funds through my PayPal debit card.

With sincere thanks....

The Ruoff family
