I want you all to know from the bottom of my heart how appreciative I am. At times I was uncertain that I would get help. I felt down and depressed because I felt I wasn't doing everything I needed to do to be able to support my family. I felt ashamed of my life. I thank you all a million times for helping me. You helped me be able to have a safe and reliable car for my family. You created hope within me and I really can't say enough how grateful I am. Thank you!

We Need Help Keeping Our Only Vehicle on The Road so We Can Keep Working! Please Help.

My Story:

I'm a stay-at-home mother with a 3-year-old daughter and 3-month-old son at home. I stay at home with them, but I also work remotely when I can to help my boyfriend out with our bills. We all live together, and he works full-time at Smithfield Packing. Being a parent gives me so much passion, and I feel so proud to be the mother of my son and my daughter. They're both absolute joys, and I look forward to seeing my son grow as the days go by and to seeing my daughter continue to learn and develop as well. Despite all the challenges we face, my boyfriend and I do our best to make sure they have everything they need.

My boyfriend has been able to work through the entire pandemic, and we're so thankful for that. However, he recently got into a car accident, and our financial situation has just spiraled out of control from there. He had to spend his entire savings on repairs to the car, and then after that, my car broke down too. My boyfriend has been using my car to get to and from work because it will be a long time before his car is fully repaired. While my car is still currently drivable, it's realistically only weeks from completely breaking down. The crankshaft and timing belt need to be fixed for it to run correctly again. Right now, we have to drive it because my boyfriend will lose his job without it, and I don't have any other way to get to and from the grocery store. We're still waiting for his car to be repaired, but in the meantime, we desperately need help getting mine repaired so that he can continue to get to and from work.

The repairs to my vehicle are relatively minor in comparison to the repairs that he requires, and while his car may take months to repair, mine can be done in a matter of days. We're dependent on my boyfriend to take care of major bills like rent and utilities, and if we lose our only vehicle, then he'll lose his job which could cause our situation to completely spiral out of control. However, this generous assistance will keep my car on the road long enough for his to be repaired, and after that, we'll finally be in the clear again. We would be so grateful for this assistance, and I want to thank everyone who lends us a hand during this hardship.
