Single Woman Needs Heat Repaired in Vehicle To Stay Safe in Winter Time

My Story:

I am almost 60 years old and I never thought I would be struggling like this. I work full time at a Library. I like to bake, walk in nature and help/spend time with my Mom who will be 90 in November.

I can keep up with basic needs but sometime struggle with other necessities like shoes and clothes. Anything major throws me into a crisis. In 2014 the City of Detroit went into bankruptcy which changed my income dramatically. My check was cut 100.00 and I also pay big hospital bills now because my medical coverage changed. I also pay high auto insurance even though I have no claims. We need Modest Needs� to help pay for my car repair because last winter I thought I was going to freeze to death. I did not realize how cold you can get in a car for a short distance. It felt worst than being outside. I desperately need assistance with this repair.

Your assistance will allow me to drive safely and comfortably. I will be most grateful and warm. I always say I can make it through, but it is really tough. Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
