Fortunately, there are resources outside of applying for government assistance. Even if you qualify for assistance, this information will help you stretch that assistance even farther. Now let's talk a little about what I find to be an incredible source of information for Florida shoppers. Southern Savers https://www.southernsavers.com/ which literally kept me and my family afloat while a family member battled kidney failure. So much so, that even with $80 a week of limited spending cash, I ended up with stockpiles of supply in my garage. Now, I do not recommend unnecessary spending or purchases at this time, due to limited supplies. We should all do our part to ensure that others have the supplies that they need as well.
