Lee from Chicago, IL

I became unemployed after a stroke. Bus passes will help me get back to work.

Bus passes will help me get back to work, keep my apartment, and take care of myself.

My need and situation

I would first like to thank everyone from Benevolent that helped me in getting the 3 monthly CTA passes. I came very close to achieving my goal of getting a job! I have had a few interviews and obtained employment, but was not able to keep it due to health issues. My situation has been feeling brighter, though. I have been maintaining my health by being active and I have another job interview soon!

I would like to be working in a job that I like and that keeps me active and healthy. I would also like to keep my apartment, be able to take care of myself, and eventually be able to help others.

I am asking for four 30-day transportation passes, valued at $100 each.

With these passes, I am able to get around the city better which opens up more job opportunities to me. Having transportation also allows me to get out of the house and stay active as I continue to look for jobs. I would like to thank everyone who helps fund this need that helps me achieve my goal.
