How to Help When Someone Loses a Job

When my husband suddenly lost his job [4] a couple of years ago, we had so many friends and even many strangers who heard about our plight and helped us out.

Local friends brought us food for our pantry and freezer, gifted us with Sonic cards and pool passes, and checked with us at church to see what specific needs we had.

One of the ways long distance friends helped us was to subscribe to have toilet paper and diapers sent to us monthly via Amazon.

Since then my husband found a great new job and we don’t have any financial worries for the time being. Praise God!

That time was rough for us, but it has opened my eyes to how to bless others when they are going through financial difficulties.

Everyone needs toilet paper, right?

If you know someone who has a financial burden, why not have diapers and/or toilet paper delivered to them monthly from Amazon [5] until they get on their feet? (Check with them first to make sure they aren’t already getting this need met.)

Helping those in financial need [5]

If you choose the “subscribe now” option, the delivery will be repeated until you cancel.

Just this week, I did the same thing for friends who are suddenly unemployed. It’s simple to do and useful for the recipient. I know first-hand how this act can relieve just one bit of financial burden when there is no job and every penny counts.
