Bruce from Charlotte, NC

I'm in need of a vehicle to help in my job search & to get my kids to school.

I've sold my old car to help raise money for a more reliable vehicle. My kids' education & my employment are dependent on reliable transportation.

Thank you for helping me acquire a car and fulfill my transportation needs. I am very grateful, for your donations. Because of you, now I can drive my sons back and forth to school without worries. This means the world to me. I would like to thank each and every one of you for making this possible. This car will also allow me to secure employment. This opportunity for me has been provided through you and your wonderful generosity. My family and I thank you for our very foundation has been established through the donors and the benevolence fund. This newly found structure would not have been possible without the donors' support. Once again thank you from the bottom of my heart from my sons and I.

My need and situation

I am a single father of two trying to maintain my children’s educational needs.

My goals are to find a reliable vehicle so I can take my children back and forth to school, and maintain stable employment. It will be extremely rewarding to be able to provide a reliable source of transportation for my children without constantly trying to find rides for them.

I need a reliable vehicle that will not break down. I have junked my old car to help me towards my need - that's how determined I am to find reliable transportation for me and my family. With their school 12 miles away, it is extremely difficult finding consistent ways of getting them to school.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to find employment, and to get my children to school. Reliable transportation will ensure they do not fall behind. Funding my need will help my family tremendously.

I have known Bruce for almost two years. He graduated from our Professional empowerment program. Since knowing Bruce he has always been the type that has always done whatever he needed to do to provide for his sons. Bruce has full custody of his two sons, and at times it's very hard for him to provide for them by working odd jobs, and not having reliable transportation. But Bruce continues to keep his head up and moving forward towards his goal which is to provide for his family. Helping Bruce with his need will help his whole family not just him. It will allow him to find employment, and take his sons back and forth to school without breaking down.
