I cannot express how grateful and thankful I am for this program. While the program was being introduced at my site I was facing hardship and had my electric shut off. The amount needed to restore service was too much for me to handle, especially since I would also need to replace the food that had went bad. I reached out to several organizations for assistance with no luck. With the holidays around the corner I didn\’t know what I was going to do. I reached out to my manager to advise of my situation who questioned if I had sought assistance from MLBA. I hadn\’t even thought of applying as I had just learned about it a week prior and was so overwhelmed by the issue I was facing. I applied for assistance that day and before the end of the week my electric was back on in time for the holidays. My children had a bright Christmas, literally, and I cannot be more grateful for the assistance received. I thank God for my Alorica family and MLBA, without them this would not have been possible. This program is truly a blessing!
