Need Help With Tires To Have A Reliable Family Car Before Winter

The Details:

I am separated and with 3 wonder children. My 12-year-old is into basketball. The twin girls like to work on crafts and are in pre-k.

I earn just enough to cover the basic expenses every month, we live paycheck to paycheck and I had no saving account set up when I separated. Our only car that I have and use daily to drive the children to school, myself to work and my son to his basketball has worn tires and I have since found out the alignment is off which has caused this quick wear on the tires. With winter coming and I live on a hill, I need to replace the tires and get an alignment. It is our only transportation for myself and my children. This is an unexpected expense and I cannot let our rent go to get new tires. My children need a warm house and reliable car to be in and this has caused a financial bind for us.

This funding will allow my household to keep a roof over their head and a reliable vehicle to put the children in. It will give me a chance to build an emergency fund so in the future I will be prepared for things like this. Your help would make a lasting impact on my family and show them that there are caring people in our world.
