Lordy from Menlo Park, CA

I'm unemployed but training for a new career. I need tuition + school supplies to succeed.

I need help with purchasing school supplies and tuition costs so I can continue my education and become employed in machining.


Thank you from Lordy Jan 27, 2014

This note has just come from Lordy:

I would like to thank you for being there when I was in need. You help has enabled me to purchase school materials and fees to help me improve my career hopes. God bless and once again thank you all!


Thank You from JobTrain Jan 13, 2014

We have received the following note from Natalie at JobTrain:

Just when I thought Christmas was over, there was a gift waiting for Lordy when I returned from the holiday break!

Thank you so much for fulfilling his need. You made Lordy a very happy man and gave him the motivation and confidence he needs to reach his goal. This gift means a lot to him and his family and will help him get to where he needs to be and do what he loves: Machining!


I need help with purchasing school supplies and tuition costs so I can continue the current classes that I have been taking. This includes school registration for the Computer Aided Manufacturing programs that allow me to program complex parts in machining. This program is the MasterCam and Siemans NX Cam express student version of their software.

My goal is to become employed. This money will allow me to complete this class and get back in the workforce.

My current situation is I am currently on county aid and in school part time so I can better myself and my family. Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to complete my education and get back in the workforce. Taking this class will prevent me from falling behind and improve my overall understanding.

I appreciate your kindness and support for helping me and my family through these trying times.

My name is Lordy and I am currently in the process of improving my education and take better care of my family. Originally I'm from Dallas Texas and have been living in East Palo Alto for seventeen years.

Something interesting about me is I love making things. I'm happiest when I'm machining things and I'm most proud of my work when it is complete and right. I have one son and many grandchildren. I am hard working and proud of the work I do!

I met Lordy a year ago when he came in for legal help. I think meeting this need is important because it will help him to complete his school program. He is eager to be back to work doing what he loves: Machining!
