Hello, one of my neighbors gave me a used car
which I definitely need and appreciate. It needs some repairs but I'm a senior citizen on a fixed income of $610.00 a month. I would love to find a free car repair shop in the Washington, D.C. Metro area because the car needs to be towed. I
would be eternally grateful. Thank You

Patty and LaVerne - why don't you print out the article about CARpenter's Garage and take it to your respective churches and suggest they look into starting the same type of service in their communities? That may start a trend nationwide, you never know. Good luck.

I am an international student studying at northern Illinois University. i bought a used car with my very limited income few months ago. I have spent almost double that amount on repairs. Now it needs a transmission. Even a used one costs around $1000. There's no way i can afford it. I would really appreciate any help regarding this repair. My email address is [email protected]

Hello,
My name is SPC Christopher Graves. I am in desperate need of help. I just got back from iraq i am married with a 3 year old little girl named Destiny. All the money i made while i was over in iraq was spent toward bills and well now my car needs a new engine. I dont like asking for help but i dont have a choice. My daughter will be 3 in june and i have to move next month because the army says its time for me to move so now im stuck. I am in desperate need of help. I dont know how i am going to be able to come up with the money to move on and i dont know how im going to come up with the money to fix my car. A new engine will cost be about 2000 or more for my car and the army will repay me for the cost of moving but i need the money upfront. I need to get my car fixed asap is there any way that you could help me out. If needed you guys could loan me the money and i could pay it back to you guys. I have tried getting loans from banks but i have bad credit because i wasnt smart with my money when i was younger and i have been trying very hard to repair it but it seems like no mater how hard i try it doesnt seem like its getting any better. So you guys are my last chance please help me out.

WE ARE WRITING TO REQUEST A WISH FOR OUR SON, JOSHUA. HE WAS BORN WITH SEVERE BILATERAL CLUB FEET, HE'S HAD SEVERAL SURGERIES. HE ALSO HAD TO HAVE SURGERY ON HIS KNEES, WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER. HE IS NOW A YOUNG MAN WITH VERY LOW SELF ESTEEM. HE IS A HARD WORKER, HE RARELY COMPLAINS BUT, YOU CAN SEE THAT HIS LEGS AND FEET BOTHER HIM. HE RECENTLY BOUGHT HIMSELF AN OLDER TRUCK WITH HIS OWN MONEY THAT HE HAS BEEN SAVING FOR AWHILE, HE WAS SO EXCITED NOW IT IS JUST BRINGING HIM DOWN, FINANCIALLY AND EMOTIONALLY, WHILE HE WAS DRIVING THE LEFT BACK WHEEL LITERALLY CAME OFF, SO THANKFUL NO ONE WAS HURT. WE FIXED IT, NOW HIS CLUTCH IS NOT WORKING, MY HUSBAND SAYS IT SEEMS TO BE THE TRANSMISSION AS WELL. HE RARELY ASKS FOR ANYTHING, I WANT TO GIVE HIM SO MUCH BUT, WE CAN'T AFFORD MUCH. MY WISH FOR HIM IS TO HAVE A VEHICLE THAT WORKS PROPERLY OR TO EVEN BE ABLE TO FIX THIS ONE TO WHERE IT IS FINANCIALLY AND STRESS FREE, MOST OF ALL SAFE FOR HIM TO DRIVE! IF YOU ARE ABLE TO HELP, IT WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, LAURA AND KEVIN NELSON
