Paramedic in Training Had Car Accident; Please Help Us Repair Our Only Car!

My Story:

I am a married father of four children. I have 3 sons and 1 daughter. My sons love sports; one plays soccer, one plays football, and the youngest plays baseball. My daughter is very artistic and loves to paint, draw, and sketch. I am an EMT trying to be accepted into paramedic school and my wife works full time in the customer service industry.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck, and we definitely don't have anything left over for savings once we pay our bills. I'm working to change that. I have been in and out of school the past 18 months working towards a degree that will let me earn more money. But recently, I was involved in an accident (not my fault), and since we have no savings set aside, I cannot afford the deductible to have our vehicle repaired. So I'm hoping Modest Needs can help us to get our vehicle repaired. We live in a rural area with no good public transportation and this is our only car. Without it, we won't be able to get to work or school, and we can't afford for me to fail these classes or for me or my wife to lose our jobs.

This funding will give us the ability to have our car back on the road, so it is safe to transport our children and get us to work on time. Once accepted in the paramedic program at school, I will have the ability to obtain my benefits as well as continue to work. This will give us the chance to build a savings account. Your assistance would be such a blessing to our family and hopefully put us in the position to do the same for someone else one day.
