Family of Five Needs Help With Car Payment

My Story:

I am a married mom of four sweet kids. My oldest is 18 and is currently serving our country in the Coastguard, Semper Paratus! Our next child is a very sweet and kind freshman in high school. He loves his football and basketball. Our ten year old has a heart of a lion and loves his sports and John Deere Tractors. Our 8 year old daughter is our sunshine who loves puppies and playing football with her brothers. I work full time at my kids school as a child care worker. I adore the children I take care of. My husband works full time as a CAD operator and has been at the same business for 26 yrs. I love and adore my family. They are such a blessing!

We earn just enough to pay our expenses and live paycheck to paycheck. I, unfortunately, lost my job last summer in August and was on unemployment until I started my new job at my kids school. Then in February, as I was taking my three kids to school, we were in a head on collision (only bumps and bruises, thank the good Lord) which totaled my car. Trying to catch up with bills has left me in a bind paying my car payment. We Need Modest Needs help in catching us up on this payment.

This funding will allow us to catch up on my car payment so we can focus on getting back on track and have a sense of peace again. We rely heavily on my car because that is how we get the kids to school and me to work every day. It will also allow us to actually put money in our savings account again so we are prepared for any emergency funding that may occur in the future and not be caught in a bind. I hope one day to pay it forward one day by helping those who are in a bind like we are.
