Vehicle Registration Renewal For Retired Postal Worker

My Story:

I am a widowed Grandma who retired a few years ago after working 35 years for USPS. I recently moved closer to my Daughter and two grandsons. They live with me and our puppy Esther.

After loosing my husband, who was killed by a drugged driver, I was emotionally and financially devastate. After a long struggle, I realized that we can't live on my retirement. My whole check covers our bills but leaves us to live with almost nothing else. I got a party time job to supplement, but we live from pay check to pay check. We are asking Modest Needs for help to pay our vehicle registration renewal fee. We are not able to afford this and I am fearing that we will lose our vehicle.

Your funding will help us so much and it will prevent us from having more financial grief. I hope you can understand our hardships. Thank you for taking the time to consider helping my family.
