As a single mother the help from my donors are greatly appreciated. With this help I will be able to repair our car. From the bottom of my heart ❤thank everyone who helped me.

My Car Has Needed Repairs for Months, but We Live Paycheck to Paycheck & Need Help Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mother with two boys at home and another who is out on his own now. I'm extremely proud of my children, and I love being their mother more than anything in the entire world. My two children who are still in school are excellent students and both earn exceptional grades in all of their classes. They're both brilliant, and I'm very proud of them. When I'm not working and when they're not in school, we love to spend time with our dogs Coco and Star, who are a Chihuahua mix and a Shiatsu mix, respectively.

Currently, I work full-time as a Pharmacy Technician for a major retail pharmacy. I like my job well enough, but we do live paycheck to paycheck because it's just my income coming in and that's just a little above minimum wage. However, we still don't qualify for any federal help, so when we do face hardship, we have to face it without any safety net. Month to month, my paycheck goes towards our bills, clothes for my kids, and food, which we often have to supplement by going to the food pantry. That doesn't leave much for anything else, so it's hard to deal with any unexpected expenses that come up. That being said, my car has needed basic maintenance done on it for months now, but the budget has been so tight that I haven't been able to get it done. I'm worried that my car will breakdown completely without this maintenance, putting us into more trouble than we're already currently in.

I'm humbly asking for help with this car repair because it will keep us from facing disaster financially. We'll be able to continue to get by without the worry that our car will break down, which would keep me out of work and make it difficult for my kids to get to and from school. This would also free up some more of my income to go towards back to school shopping for my kids this year. We would be so grateful for this help and want to thank everyone who helps us with these car repairs for your generosity and kindness in advance.
