EVENT DATE Sep 11, 2015
My friend Jana is a single mother of three who works very hard to provide a wonderful life for her family. Due to having a single income she (like many of us) has been essentially living paycheck to paycheck. Her dollars have all found their uses which has left very limited room for emergencies.
This fragile financial dance was shattered yesterday when her vehicle was hit by a 5th wheel. This presumably inexperienced driver hit her vehicle while turning. Jana's car was stopped at a light. The driver missed her car with their truck but ultimately tore the front of her SUV off and has caused her car to be undriveable as it damaged the cooling system as well.
Jana has no money to repair or replace this vehicle. It is likely totaled. She doesn't even have the means to have the car towed to her house or to a mechanic. On top of all of that, her car was towed yesterday evening and now sits in impound with a release fee of $259 :(
Jana needs a car to get her kids to and from school, take them to other events, and also for Jana to get to work so that she may continue to earn for her family.
I think our goal would be to give Jana enough money to lift the burden of this unexpected incident enough that she can work on other means of transport or to repair her current vehicle.
First order of business? Enough for release from impound and a tow. That would do nicely. Thanks all.
