Bosie from Chicago, IL

I'm a single father learning a trade; I need equipment to complete my program.

I want to provide a stable life for my son. I need a welding helmet, measurement tools, etc. so I can finish this program and work as a welder.

My need and situation

I am a a single father of a 10 year old. A year and a half ago, his mom cut all ties with him. I was due to report to work that day and she said he was not being picked up. She said he was to live with me from that moment forward. I lost that job and now I'm learning a trade.

I have plans to find employment after I get my welding certificate. My goals are to be able to provide for my child.

I need steel-toe boots, metrology kit, welding helmet, and eye glasses with transitions to protect my eyes.

Meeting this need will help me because it will allow me to focus on completing this program without stress. My son is depending on me and I won't let him down.
