Help With Home Repairs

As you can see from the photo, I clearly need a new deck roof.  Unfortunately, even though I'm able to scrounge free lumber from work, I can't afford the other materials needed to repair the roof.  I also have a couple of other urgent expenditures which I need to take care of, but can't afford at the moment, so I'm asking for help from my friends.

Here's the listing of materials that I need and their costs, so you can see what your money will be going for:

GAF Mineral Guard 3.28-ft W x 32.58-ft L 100-sq ft Charcoal Roll Roofing

$37 ea. Total : $148

36-in x 144-ft 432-sq ft Felt Roof Underlayment


Amerimax 6-in x 50-ft Aluminum Roll Flashing


BLACK JACK 4.75-Gallon Fibered Waterproofer Roof Sealant

$48 ea. Total: $96

Olympic Assure Flat Flat Acrylic Exterior Paint (Actual Net Contents: 124-fl oz)

$19.98 ea. Total: $39.96

Amerimax 5-in x 120-in K Style Gutter


10 in. 15 AMP benchtop table saw
#63118 $139.99

Total: 799.76

The other expenditures are mostly related to my two cats.  I recently rescued a female kitten who'd been abandoned in an industrial area.  She was barely old enough to be away from her mother, and if I hadn't saved her, she'd have gotten flattened by a truck or starved to death.  I need to get her vaccinated and spayed as soon as I can, because I have an unneutered male cat, and I really don't want any more cats than I already have.  Getting her vaccinated and fixed will cost about $150 at the only vet I can reach by walking since I don't have a car.  Getting the male cat fixed (he's already been vaccinated) will cost about $75.  The final expense I have is that the overhead light fixture in my kitchen no longer works, and will cost me at least $45 to replace (assuming I can find one that will work and don't have to modify the ceiling to install a different one).

Any money left over (which, knowing my luck, won't be much) will be put towards getting me a car.  As will any funds raised over my goal.  I don't like asking people for money, but at the moment my income level isn't sufficient for me to be able to take care of these things.  Thanks for your support.

Took Buttons to the vet today for her first set of vaccinations and to have her tested for FIV and FLV. The good news is that she got a clean bill of health, other than some worms (which they gave me medicine for her). She has to go for her next round of vaccinations in 3 weeks, and then in 3 months, I can get her and Fuzznuts fixed! Yay! Today's tab ran to $151, which is more than I had budgeted, but I'm not complaining. Knowing that Buttons is healthy is more important.
