Recently Filled Needs

Urgent need for financial help

We have a family of 4 in our community who is struggling to make ends meet. The wife is working two jobs and the husband recently had to be go on disability due to a health issue. 
They are behind on payments on their car, their only means of transportation and without that the wife won’t be able to get to and from work. The finance company will repossess the car if the payments are not made on time. 
We know that this family is working really hard to stay on top of payments but could really use some extra help right now. 

We are hoping to raise around $500 to help them.
