Help me start my plumbing career!

Hi, everybody! So, many of you have been following my journey leading to my new plumbing apprenticeship over the course of the past few months. For those of you who haven't, my name is Danielle, and I'm a 25- year-old first term plumbing apprentice in Portland, Oregon. What this means for me is lots of learning, lots of new stresses, and also a huge initial financial investment. So far, I've spent everything I'd saved on an old truck to tote me to jobsites, my first pair of work boots, and a handful of hand tools to start. And now, I'm in a pickle. I've got $500 in tuition to cover by early September in addition to another $300 or so in tools and a few necessary auto repairs to cover, and I've got very little left. It feels very strange to be doing this. I'm not expecting anything, but absolutely anything would help. I can't start class until tuition is paid, and I'm at the point of selling belongings to cover it. Thank you so much for reading, and thanks to everyone who's cheered me on throughout this process. I really count on your encouragement more than you know. Thank you so much for reading!
