Greg from Chicago, IL

I'm a single father learning the welding trade. I need equiment for my job search

Providing for my kids' needs is the #1 priority in my life. So I need a skilled job to provide for them. Welding gear will get me that job.


I am a single parent of an 11 year old son and 6 year old daughter. Providing for their needs is my most important job in life.

My goal is to find a skilled job that pays the bills and allows me to provide for their future. To that end, I was blessed to have found and enrolled in the Jane Addams Resource Corporation Fast Track welding program.

Now that I am nearing completion of the program, I will need welding equipment for my job search. In my current situation, I am having to spend most of my money on childcare and basic living expenses for my family.

Having this need met will allow me to be able to use the money I would have spent on equipment for my children to sign up for sports programs. I greatly appreciate your assistance. Your help will make a difference for my family. I intend to pay your good deed forward. Thank you.

Validated by Dan from Jane Addams Resource Corporation (What does this mean?)

I first met Greg several weeks ago when he began the CNC fast track program here at Jane Addams Resource Corporation. It is a demanding program that requires a great deal of dedication and commitment. Greg is not only a good student, but also a great father to his son and daughter, and he loves talking about them. With a little help to buy some equipment for his job search, he will be back on track and back to taking care of his number one priority, his kids.
