Highlighting Those In Need: Diana From North Carolina

car donation applicantThe Original 1-800-Charity Cars, a national car donation charity, operates the unique website www.freecharitycars.org, where people in need of reliable transportation sign up and apply for a free charity car. Today we would like to highlight one of our car donation applicants to connect you with the people in need of a viable mode of transportation.

Diana, from North Carolina, signed up through our vehicle distribution site on June 6, 2014, where she has applied for assistance in receiving a car. Here is a summary of her situation:

“I am 46 years old and I am severe hard of hearing in both ears since 4 years old, along with other health issues. I am surviving solely on SSI disability. It has been 4 years now that I have struggled with getting to medical appointments, and not being able to get to counseling. I miss having my independence, and I hate having to ask for rides or pay just to go to the store to meet my basic needs.

My parents live 30 minutes away and they try to help me as much as they can. However, my mother is disabled and my father is a disabled veteran. They have a lot on their plate to deal with already, and having to worry about me is just added stress to their already burdened load.

Any help I can get with transportation would be a blessing beyond measure for me. It would help give me a whole new outlook, and I would be able to get a part time job or go to school. I have tried to get a car on my own, but do not have the money to save to buy one. I am ineligible for a loan because I do not have enough money or the credit for one.

I hope that someone can help me make my dream come true!”
