This person has left the following thank you note:

Our family over the last 18 months have had a humbling journey, having experienced many trials and disappointments. When we received an estimate of repairs to our only car, it seemed that another disappointment was soon to befall us if our car was not repaired. We use this car for transportation for our two daughters to their jobs as well as necessary family use. We are 15 miles to the nearest city where our Doctors and hospital are located. When your spirit is broken you lose your hope in family,friends,neighbors and people in general, but we knew that the LORD would provide. We applied for assistance from Modest Needs and we again did not have high hopes. The weeks passed by and our hope dwindled as the time limit that is allowed was drawing near. I was busy doing some work outside preparing for winter, my wife came out and told me we had received our funding for the car. I was, well shocked and very very happy to hear that we could finally repair our car. I know that everyone who has made a contribution has sacrificed something. It hasn't totally set in on our family how much of a blessing this is to us. More important to me right now is not the car repair but how I can say ''Thank You'. When your life has been changed and you are headed in another direction because of the kindness of others saying 'Thank You' is not enough. How can we say 'Thank You' to everyone being that these are anonymous donations, we can't, we can only follow your direction and make a sacrifice and help others as you all have graciously done. I must say again with all earnestness and with a humble spirit 'Thank You'. I know that the blessing will return to you. Gary

One-Car-Family Needs Repair Help!

My Story:

We are a family of five made up of my wife, 2 daughters, grandson and myself. I live on a fixed income and my wife babysits our grandson, while my daughters works. We have only one car, which we use to drive both of our daughters to work and for doctors appointments. The car is in poor conditions and needs some mandatory repairs done on it.

We are turning to Modest Needs to help us fix our vehicle. As I had to be in the hospital for 3 months last year, we fell behind on our finances, and don't have anything extra in order to be able to afford this repair. If we are unable to repair this vehicle, it is likely that the girls will lose their jobs. They both work full time: one in order to continue her education in nursing, and the other in order to support her son. I am very afraid of losing this car. I was told that if we don't repair it, further damage would triple the repair costs!

This funding would enable our family to return to financial stability. We have had a few rough years, but are optimistic for the future. We would love at some point to be able to help others in need too. Thank you!
