Young Family Needs Car Repair Help For Their Only Vehicle

My Story:

I'm a married father of three small children. I am the sole provider for our family while my wife stays home to care for our kids who are not old enough for school. I recently experienced a change in employment, which put our finances through an even greater strain than usual. While I have found new employment, I recently found out that the transmission in my car has completely broken down and needs to be replaced. Without this car, it will be almost impossible for me to take my eldest to school and to commute to my job.

Your help will allow me to take care of the transportation needs of my other daughters as they start school. Once all of our kids are out of the house during the week, my wife can start a job and register for classes at a community college or online program. Your help with this repair will make sure that our growing family stays on track.
