Please Help Fix My Alternator

My Story:

I am a single person. I currently work part time as a window clerk with the United States Postal Service. I am a non-career employee, meaning I work for USPS and but get no benefits.

I have been living check to check. My mother receives SSDI and my father is deceased. I do not receive any type of government assistance. My car had been in the shop for a few months now since the repair bill is way over my budget. When I was finally able to somehow partially pay for the repair and take my car, they told me that I need a new alternator. If I do not get this car fixed I will not be able to get to work. I live in a rural area with no public transportation and my office is 15 miles away from home. I am asking Modest needs to assist me with the purchase of an alternator.

This funding will allow me to work and keep the stress off my shoulders. If I can get the car working, I could pick up a part time job anywhere that way I can start to save some money for rainy days. Thank you so much!!
