To Everyone Who Helped Me, I can't thank you enough for your generosity in helping me with my truck payment. Thank You!!! Your help with this payment enables me to get back and forth to work and learn more about my career in Emergency & Disaster Management which gives me the experience I need to help others when disasters strike. Your kindness will not be forgotten. I know that you didn't have to help me but I am sure glad you did! I will remember to pay it forward. Not having any family to lean on is very difficult at times and we all need a shoulder to lean on sometimes. Thank you for letting me lean on you! You have really lifted a heavy burden for me. It means the world to me! Thank you again!!
I'm an Essential Worker on the Verge of Losing My Truck! Please Help.
I am a single, professional woman who, recently, earned a degree in Emergency & Disaster Management. Previously, I worked as a schoolteacher who taught Science. I am only able to get part-time hours while trying to gain experience in Emergency Management as an essential worker. Currently, I am helping monitor our number of positive cases of COVID in Seminole County and talk to people who tested positive for COVID. I live alone with my dog, and all of my other family have passed on.
I have been struggling over the past year with COVID, and it's kept me out of work a few different times. I manage all of my finances completely on my own, so it's been difficult to manage the interruptions to my income. I had over 400,000 miles on my previous car, and it was breaking down a lot, so I had to get a new vehicle. The payments are high, and I am working towards refinancing it but as a single woman, I need reliable transportation. Unfortunately, I am not making enough money at this time to cover everything, and I have not found a full-time position yet. I'm on the verge of having my truck repossessed, so I'm humbly asking for help with keeping my vehicle.
Any help with this payment will help prevent me from getting bad credit or having my car repossessed and having no means of transportation. I have been applying for full-time positions and this part-time position is giving me the experience that I need to find a better career. Within the next month or two, I should have a full-time position and be in a better situation financially so that I can pay it forward. Until then, I would be so grateful for this help with keeping my vehicle, and I will never forget the kindness and generosity I'm shown.
