Me and my family would love to thank you all in assisting us is the time of need! Because of your kind donations, you've given me the ability to take control of my situation.

I'm a Navy Veteran Heading Back to Work, but I Need Help Keeping Our Car Please!

My Story:

I'm a married father and a Navy veteran. My wife and I have two wonderful children together, a 6-year-old daughter and a 7-month-old son. I try my best to work hard for my family, but my disabilities resulting from my service sometimes make it difficult. It's been hard to keep a physical job, but I recently was given a job offer and accepted after months of searching. Now, I'm just preparing for the tough battle that will be climbing out of our current financial situation, but I have faith and hope that we'll be able to make it out!

Working at my old job was very difficult, and I couldn't keep up with the physical demands of my position. I asked my managers and supervisors if I could be relocated to another office that was closer and had less demand, but that request was refused. Eventually, I just couldn't keep up due to my disability and had to resign. Thankfully, I was able to find a new job relatively quickly; however, in the time that I was searching for a new job, we fell behind on our car payments and won't be able to catch up in time for me to have gotten my first paycheck.

My greatest fear right now is that we're going to lose our car before I'm able to begin working again. I'm going to start collecting a paycheck soon, but if I lose my car before that can happen, then I'm going to lose my job just as we're starting to get back on our feet. With that being said, I'm humbly seeking help with our past due car payment so that we can avoid repossession as I get back to work. My family will never forget this assistance, and I know that we'll be able to pay it forward in the near future. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity in advance.
