Need a Reliable Van Fund for Sheryl

I have a great friend; her name is Sheryl Bernal.  She has been one of my best friend for over 15yrs.  She helped me raise my two daughters as a struggling single mom.  As a single mother, the fact that I had someone taking care, teaching and loving my children unconditionally was priceless.  My daughters are now adults and Sheryl is still following her heart of helping children.

Sheryl is a very special person in the lives of children.  She teaches in the church ministry, for many years she was a playground supervisor for LAUSD where 100’s of children have been touched by her beautiful heart.  She currently works full time as a special education aid at a middle school.  The children call her Mrs. Sheryl and there is always a hug and a smile.  Sheryl also house sits, pet sits and anything else that would allow her extra money to invest in her grandkids and the other children she teaches.  She’s the most unselfish person I know and my true hero. 

The reason for this GoFundMe is that Sheryl is in desperate need of a reliable family van.  She has 2 small grandchildren and another one on the way.  She cares for her grandchildren and does not have a reliable form of transportation that is safe and low maintenance.  Sheryl was recently in a car accident and never complained when she had to walk everywhere for weeks until she had enough money to get it running again.

My hope and prayer is that the GoFundMe family would give back to a dear friend who has not only touched my life but many… many others.  Please help me get grandma and her grandkids a reliable quality van.  We appreciate any contribution.  Thank you for reading and God Bless you!
