Hi Folks, My name is Paul Zakrzewski and I live in Braintree, Ma. I'm 61 yers old. I graduated from Braintree High School in 1973. I am hopeful that I can raise enough money to buy a cheap used car to get around locally. The picture is of myself and my younger sister at a benefit. I've been working since I was 14 year old sweeping floors for $1.50 an hr. After several other jobs including selling Fuller Brush (remember them?), working as a dish washer at various places, delivering news papers and working in a foundary and more. After graduation, my Dad got me a job where he worked for Raytheon Company in Quincy, Ma. (A defense contractor). I started at $3.51 an hour and was so very happy. I spent 33 years there and when the plant closed to put up a Home Depot I was laid off. Fortunatly I bounced back and started my own Internet business and eventually was able to buy a house in Carver, Ma. in 2007. I was so thrilled to have my own house and a successful business. Unfortunatly, I bought during the housing bubble and the economic recession. My business failed due to lack of sales and my house was foreclosed in 2011. In 2012 I moved back to the house where I grew in since 1958 with my brother Mark. My sister Gail lives in Kingston, Ma. My brother has 3 children and my sister has 2. I never was able to have children, I wish I did. My parents have both passed in the last 10 years. I was able to get a pension from Raytheon for $1045 a month which I'm grateful for. After rent and property tax expenses, I don't have much to live on these days. I rely on my brother to take me to get food and Dr. Appointments. This is very humbling and I would like to have some freedom and not rely on him. I am hoping to raise enough money to but a cheap car. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. Humbly, Paul
