This is an act of faith. I'm asking you to help a woman with three children raise money to purchase a vehicle. She moved to Gainesville area from Miami with nothing. She's had to live from house to house and even found herself with her three kids in a homeless shelter. When she finally landed a job at McDonald's she worked hard and full force. At the same time she was on a waiting list for housing and when she was finally approved the house happened to be in a small town nearby but too far for commute and McDonald's wouldn't allow her to transfer her job. So now, she is once again jobless living in a small town with no transportation systems like buses and cabs. Mary has to walk miles to wash clothes, go to the library, and get groceries. All the while if you met her you will only be greeted with a smile and words of encouragement and absolute faith. People that helped could only provide limited help and having her own transportation would be liberating for her and her children.
