Parents of 2 Young Girls Need Help Keeping Family Vehicle Safe

My Story:

I am a mother of two wonderful daughters. My 10 year old is a competition cheerleader and my 5 year old is a smart and active little girl. My husband works full time in a plumbing warehouse and I am a full time kindergarten teacher. We love spending time together as a family.

We live pay check to pay check and had a death in the family over the summer. Our savings account has not been able to recover since. Our family vehicle is in need of new tires and we are unsure how we will get to and from all our functions and obligations with only one vehicle. The tires are considered to be unsafe but we have no choice to keep driving it as is. It causes us great stress everyday and it is negatively affecting our life. We are worried for the safety of our family if we do not put new tires on our vehicle. We need Modest Needs help to buy new tires for our car that is our only means of transportation.

We are positive that this help would put us in a better place both spiritually and physically. We know that we can get back to a place where we have rebuild a savings in case of emergencies. We would love to show our daughters that keeping a positive attitude can make all the difference sometimes, and there is no shame in asking for help.
