Eric from Detroit, MI

Recently laid off; I need help fixing my car radiator to make it to interviews.

I need the radiator fixed on my car so I can get to job interviews, transport my family and eventually get to work when I land a position.


I was recently laid off after working for a major beverage corporation for three years. I am now looking for work and am hopeful because I have many skills. I have two children and want to be there for them as much as I can but since I lost my job it has been difficult.

My goals are to find work and to provide for my family.

I need the radiator fixed on my car.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to get to interviews and job fairs, transport my family and get me to work, when I land a position.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Eric fund this need.

I've been working with Eric since 2013. He is very determined to find employment but it has been difficult. We've been meeting and working on his interview skills so he can land a job. He's already had a few interviews and we are waiting to hear back regarding employment. If he gets a call to work, having his car up and running would eliminate the one barrier that would allow him to start.
