Recovering From Job Loss Help Me Keep My Commuter Car

My Story:

I am 28 years old and currently single. I work full time as a phlebotomist at a Plasma donation center in Florida. I love to sing and bake in my spare time.

I lost my job in November of 2016. I did my best and worked hard but was let go after working there for almost 2 years. I've always lived paycheck to paycheck, so this was a financial crisis for me. I had no choice but to move from Tennessee to Florida to live with my sister so she could help support me until I get back on my feet. Now that I am here and employed again, I'm trying to play catch up. It's a lot harder than I thought. I am behind on several bills and owe money to my former roommate. But most importantly, I am 2 months behind on my car loan payment.

I am incurring late fees and crossing my fingers that they don't repossess my car soon. I need help because I cannot lose my car. I need it to get to work. I have only been employed for 3 weeks now and haven't made much money yet.

This funding will help me get back on track with my car loan and car insurance and give me time to get my financial footing back. This will give me peace of mind knowing that my car is safe in my possession and paid for temporarily. Your help would mean the world to me, and I will be very grateful for any donation, no matter how big or small it is.
