User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want to sincerely thank everyone who contributed in helping my family during an obviously weird time in the world! I know a lot of people don't have a lot to give to others but the fact that there are still people out there who sincerely want to help others move forward has reevaluated the hope I have for others. I am definitely a person who does not like to ask for help but there's a time in everyone's life when they genuinely need it and I am very thankful and blessed that there are still generous people out there willing to help my family. I want to thank everyone with my entire soul for helping me be able to relieve this struggle that I have had and your generosity has definitely not gone unnoticed. Again, Thank you!

We've Struggled to Catch Up After COVID & Need Help Keeping Our Car Please!

My Story:

I am a single mother to the two loves of my life. My 8-year-old son is creative and loves to build and sew. My 6-year-old son is sweet, compassionate, loves to go with the flow and has the personality of a feather; he floats around without a care in the world. I also work full-time as the manager at a local bagel shop, and it was always enough to get us by until the pandemic began.

In May of 2020, Coronavirus caused my place of employment to shut down for 6 weeks. My bills were already behind at the time, but thankfully, the stimulus checks allowed me to catch up on some of the past due bills. However, there wasn't anything left in the tank to take care of our car payment, so I've had a really difficult time keeping up with that. If we lose our car, we'll get further and further into a hole that we will have no way to climb out of.

I'm humbly asking for help with our car payment because we just can't afford to lose our only means of transportation while we're trying to recover from the pandemic. Not having to worry about where I'm going to find the money to pay for this car payment or what bill I'm going to have forgo paying instead will take a huge weight off of our shoulders. More importantly, I'll be able to keep my job and work hard to pull us out of the struggle the pandemic has put us in. Slowly but surely, we will get back on our feet, and this generous assistance will make sure we're able to stay on track. For that reason, I want to say 'thank you' to everyone who helps us with our car payment. We will never forget the kindness and generosity we're shown.
