Letter to the Editor:

Please Donate $1.00, If everybody donates one dollar. If the Lord leads to donate more that’s great too. I should be able to get the vehicle. Below is my explanation of why I need one:

Having my own transportation will empower me, I live in an area where there is no public transportation. Lack of transportation affects my job search, but in some ways it has been a positive experience. It has made me more humble and better at planning.

Having transportation would enable to me to more active in my children’s educational experience. It makes it easier to visit their school and to stay in contact with their teachers. Having a car would make it easier to allow my children to participate in extracurricular activities. Having a vehicle will assist with getting my children to medical appointments and allow us to have recreational experiences.

I do receive temporary assistance for needy families and this will enable to license the car and keep insurance. I am actively seeking employment. I participate in Connections to Success “Going Places Network” a weekly job search workshop. I am working with MERS/ Goodwill for employment assistance as well.

To keep my skills current , I volunteer and maintain a Twitter account for Sparkman’s Job Talk Radio Show. I also assist the pastor at St. John AME Church.

Having a vehicle will be blessing for myself and my family. Thank you for your consideration. Please help by donating a dollar via my PERSONAL pay account , which is connected to lysyin7@gmail.com or contact wheels of hope and ask them how you can donate to help me directly.
