I Lost Work Due to an Injury, & I Need Help Keeping My Vehicle Please!

My Story:

I am a single female, and I live in an apartment with my roommate of several years now. I have a 6 year old cat named Percy. I enjoy reading, crocheting, and meeting new people. After struggling with alcohol abuse, I recently entered a 12-step recovery program, and I feel freer than I ever have. I don't have much family left, and my daughter lives a few cities away, so I don't get to see her as much as I would like.

My roommate and I both work very hard to maintain all of our bills, and we both work in a nearby warehouse. I had been doing that type of work for years, but I had to stop recently due to a medical problem. I sustained the injury because of the amount of time I was spending on my feet at work. Regularly, I would walk between 8 to 12 miles every day. After requesting a different role at the warehouse, my employer decided to force me out instead of allowing me to work through my injury. As a result, I'm only earning 60% of my paycheck, and that hasn't been enough to keep up with all of our bills. Now, I'm going to come up short on my car payment and car insurance payment this month, so I'm asking for assistance with both of those.

I'm hoping that I can return to work as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I need assistance if I'm going to be able to keep my car on the road. This help would keep me employed, and it would allow me to continue to focus on all of my recovery goals. I've been working very hard to live a better life, and this assistance would allow me to continue the progress that I've made. Thank you.
