Hero - Kansas City
Simone is a single mother of two elementary school aged children. She has been employed at Waldo Pizza for over a year and is a hard working employee. The car she did have has broken down beyond repair.
STORY: Cynthia relocated here to Kansas City Mo. from Colorado due to domestic abuse, leaving behind everything she own including her car to get away from her abuser. Cynthia now has a full time job working @ the Crown Center. However she has to use the bus for transportation, and faithfully stands in the bitter cold every morning to get to work. it took much courage for Cynthia to leave everything including family and come to another state not knowing anyone and start over and I feel having a car would help and bless her to get to work and not have to stand in the cold.
Story: My name is Amber. I am writing in today to ask for help. We dont have a vehicle and my husband has to get rides to work. I am very embarrassed, but I am at the point that I really need help. Let me tell you a little about myself. I have four children and my husband has two. We joined our families and have been married two years. I feel he is an angel that was sent to me. My children now have a father and that alone is a blessing.

I am writing this letter for a Marine friend I’ve known for many years, (never former Marine) who has been going through some very difficult physical/financial times. He just had cancer surgery and was in dire financial hardship and was being evicted from his present living arrangement. (He never asked to move in, I offered.) I invited him to move into one of our spare bedrooms to try and get his financial feet back under him.
