Needs a Car

My mom is in desperate need of a vehicle. A few weeks ago her vehicle completely stopped working.

My mom is the least selfish person I know. She has resided in Sylvan Beach for 38 years. During that time she has helped the community in many ways. She was the President of the PTO at the Elementary School despite not even having a student there for several years. She has helped neighbors including taking them for groceries or at their house. For years she helped so many with their kids so they could go to work. I learned recently that she would charge them only what they could afford to give her. This past January my brother passed away and prior to his passing he was looking at cars to help her replace her current one. My Husband and I are able to help to a point but with the help of others we hope to be able to get her a better one. 

My mom right now lives 30 minutes from me and I doing my best to let her borrow one of our vehicles once a week. She also has physical therapy twice a week which thankfully she has been able to get rides to. 

If you could please consider donating we all would appreciate it very much. My mom needs something positive in her life.
