Thank you so much for your part in helping my son and myself. You have no idea how much this means, not only financially, but spiritually as well. This could not have come at a better time, again thank you all for the blessings you have bestowed upon myself and my child. Also, the inspiration you have given me personally about the hope that there are still amazing people in this world.
I'm Searching for Work, but I Need Help Keeping Our Car in the Meantime Please!
I am a single mom to a wonderful 5-year-old boy. My son starts school in August, and I am officially registered to go back to college at the same time to finally pursue my dream of working in the mental health field. I'm hoping to complete school and find a job that will help me give my son more stability as he grows up.
We were self-sufficient before the pandemic, and I was working at a rehabilitation clinic at the time. However, I was laid-off a few months after the pandemic began, and we had to start relying on unemployment to get us through. I had also planned on getting a part-time job to help us make it through the pandemic, but I was unable to after my car broke down. I managed to save up to get it repaired, but then my unemployment benefits were cut which caused me to fall behind on my car insurance payments. Now, I'm in the middle of a job search and am stuck having to choose between paying my car insurance or my car note, and I need help with the latter please.
Keeping my car is extremely important to our livelihood because it's the only way I'll be able to get to and from work when I can find a job waitressing, and it's the only way I can get my son and I to and from school. Getting caught up on my car note will save us from disaster, and once I can find work, I should be able to get us through this short-term hardship once and for all. Thank you all in advance for helping us keep our only vehicle, and I promise to never forget the generosity we're shown.
