Please Help Us Repair Our Car so That My Daughter Can Get to School Safely!

My Story:

I'm a father of an amazing 5-year-old daughter, and I'm raising her on my own. For the last five years, we've been living in government housing and trying to rebuild our lives after some difficult years. I'm doing the best that I can for my daughter, but we're in a tough spot right now and need some help to keep going.

I work full-time after being in and out of a job for years, and that's given us some much-needed stability. However, we still tend to live from paycheck to paycheck, so when emergencies come along, they really put a strain on us. Our only vehicle broke down the other day, and I don't have the income to fix it on my own without having to sacrifice our other monthly bills. Personally, I don't have a problem with walking to work in the Texas heat because I'll do anything to feed my family, but my daughter is starting school again soon, and I can't have her walking around in this heat. It's too dangerous for her to walk to school, so I'm seeking assistance with getting our only vehicle repaired.

This help would give me a chance to fix our vehicle without having to forgo covering our rent and utilities. Most importantly, it would ensure that my daughter can get to and from school safely and away from the heat. Thank you to everyone who lends us a hand with these repairs, and I promise to pay it forward when we're back on our feet again.
