We Need Help Getting Our Vehicle Back on the Road So We Can Work Again!

My Story:

I am a married father of a wonderful daughter. My 18-year-old daughter is very energetic and loves doing hair. She also loves to spend time and play fetch with our family dog, Princess. I work full-time as a Technical Helpdesk Agent for a large company, and my wife works as a Medical Assistant.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. We had no savings set aside when our family vehicle broke down without warning, and since then, I've been really worried about our situation as a result. This is our family's only transportation, and without it, my wife and I can't get to work. We've been having to get rides from friends or take Ubers just to get by, but we can't continue to rely on them for help, and we've already been late to a few shifts due to a lack of transportation. We still need to pay for a new alternator and ignition coil, and the repair costs have put us in an unexpected financial bind, as the costs of the Ubers have added up as well. My family is in a really desperate situation, so I'm very humbly asking for assistance with getting our car repaired.

My wife and I desperately need to get our vehicle back on the road so that we can get to and from work consistently. More than anything, we want to put this situation behind us and get back to working hard and taking care of our family. That's why we would be very thankful for this help with getting our car back on the road. Thank you all in advance for showing us generosity and compassion in our time of need.
