User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeThank you so much for your kindness. This help means so much to our family and we have no words to describe how greatful we are. We can now fix our car and don't have to stress about transportation to school, work, appointments, and to the grocery store. We will try our best to pay it forward and help others in any way we can. Again, thank you so much for your help.

My Car's Repairs Have Taken Everything, & It Still Isn't Safe. Please Help Me Get My Kids To School!

My Story:

I was blessed with a beautiful family of 5. I work in the animal care department of a pet store, and my husband is a cook at Bob Evans. I have twin daughters that will be turning 8 in December and a boy who is 13. The girls are identical in looks but not in personality. Amber is sassy and so smart, and Taylor is calm and loves to mother everyone and everything. My son is a gamer and is the most compassionate person I have ever met.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. We had set some savings aside, but our family vehicle suddenly broke down. We ended up having to use that money for the repairs. It was our family�s only means of transportation, so we had no choice. Without the car, we couldn�t go to work or get the kids to school. Now, we must pay for an oil leak repair, and this has put us in a real bind.

I had to buy a car for our family, so I settled on one I could afford: a 2007 Ford Fusion. Unfortunately, I have had to put more into the car than I bought it for. I have paid thousands on repairs, and it has eaten away all my savings. We are walking to school while we figure out the situation with our car, but it will get too cold to walk soon.

This assistance would get us back on track again. I could build up my savings; it would mean so much to our family to get this help.
