We're Living Paycheck to Paycheck & Need Help After Our Car Broke Down to Pay for the Repairs Please
I'm a single mother with three wonderful kids at home. My two sons, ages 12 and 4 years old, love to play baseball, and my 6-year-old daughter loves to take dance classes. They're all so full of energy and keep me on my toes constantly! I'm also taking care of my mother currently because she's a widow and is recovering from open heart surgery. The way that I see it is that she's taken care of me for my whole life, so it's only right that I do the same for her when she needs me to.
I work full-time as a business office manager at a nursing home, and I really enjoy what I do. However, being a single mother while also taking care of my mother means that we have no choice but to live paycheck to paycheck. Unexpected expenses always have the potential to ruin us financially, and that's what we're facing right now. I recently learned that I need to replace the alternator and radiator on my car, and the cost of that expense just isn't something I can afford right now. It's hard because if I can't get my vehicle fixed, then I'll lose my job, but if I pay to get it fixed, then I can't afford our rent and will lose our home. We're stuck in a bad situation right now, and we need a way out before we lose everything. That's why I'm humbly asking for help with these car repairs.
This assistance would be the support that my family desperately needs right now, and it would keep us from having to decide between losing our only means of transportation as well as my job or losing our home. Your generosity would also be an important example for my children to follow, and I hope that someday they might grow up to give to others in the way that you have given to us. Thank you all for your compassion and kindness.
