Mother Needs New Tires For Safe Transportation

My Story:

I am a single mother of a 12 year old girl. My daughter is a beautiful dancer with very unique qualities. She sometimes struggles socially but is currently in therapy and has to go weekly. I work as a full time family support worker for a nonprofit organization helping moms and families that sometimes have difficulties with parenting.

I need 4 tires for my car. This is my second biggest car expense and I couldn't afford both this month. I used my savings to pay for the first car repair which cost $350. I feel unsafe driving with these tires on my car that have very little tread and we just got an unexpected 6 inches of snow and its still coming down. I can't run behind on my rent or I'll be charged a $75 late fee and I have to pay for my daughters expenses as well that I can't afford to have lapse. I am asking for Modest Needs help with the cost of new tires.

Your help will allow me to not have to sacrifice a bill and I can work on building up my savings account again. With your help I can do my job efficiently and have a safe mode of transportation for my daughter. In turn I will pay it forward when I am able to. This is why when I ever have extra funds I donate to various agencies because you never know when you'll be needing assistance like I do now.

As of 2019-02-27, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2019-03-01, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $388.00 to Tom & Paul's Tire Trax Inc on behalf of this deserving individual.
