THE STORY:

 {Update:  some people asked us to put up a gofindme page for their convineice. So we did. We also slpit our  goal in half so we are still asking for the same amount in total} Nancy is a single mom and a college student. Nancy earned an Associates of Science degree with honors in Biology from Highland Community College in Freeport, IL, in May 2015. She has won scholarships to Northern Illinois University, located in DeKalb, IL. While at Highland, Nancy worked 3 jobs: Tutor, Peer Mentor and Biology Lab Assistant. She has also been offered employment at NIU. Everything is set for her to complete her education except… right around graduation, Nancy’s van gave out and was not worth repairing. She now has no transportation to make the trip to and from Freeport to DeKalb for her university classes. Nancy’s 14 year old son and adult daughter have special needs. They have strong friendships and support networks in the community, so moving at this time is not an option. Nancy needs a reliable vehicle to be able to continue her education on track. It has been Nancy’s dream from early childhood to be a scientist, however, for the past 20 years, her 3 children have had to come first. Nancy also fights a debilitating Autoimmune Arthritis which may eventually disable her. Education will help her be self-sufficient, even if that happens. Now is the time for her to follow her dream! Some might ask, “Why should I help Nancy pay for a car?” First, Nancy has no other recourse. Her campus jobs all ended upon graduation. She has had job offers in her field of study, which she had to turn down for lack of transportation. She also needs a vehicle for everyday things like grocery shopping and doctor appointments because right now, Nancy has no vehicle at all. Secondly, by helping Nancy, you will be providing stewardship for our planet, which is in need of our ongoing care. With her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies, Nancy will help ensure that our natural resources flourish for the benefit of future generations. Thirdly, if Nancy is unable to acquire a reliable vehicle, all that she has worked so hard for may be lost. Help Nancy purchase a car to make the daily commute from her home in Freeport to DeKalb.
