Kelly is a single mom of two young boys, who connected to Vine Maple Place after suffering a job loss that put her housing at risk. Because of the financial support of donors, her eviction was stopped - and Kelly got help to obtain a new job in Kent. However, without a car, Kelly relied on public transportation to commute to work - 2 HOURS each direction morning and evening. Fortunately, two local men, one who is an auto mechanic, have teamed up to locate and repair used vehicles and donate them to needy parents. Kelly was the recipient of one of the vehicles! When told she would receive a car, she burst into tears. "I'm so thankful...this changes so much for me and my kids. Now, I can get more groceries than the one bag I usually carry! It opens up other job options, too. Even better, I can drive us to church on Sunday... and now I can go visit my mom's grave. That means the world to me. Thank you!" There are SIX more moms, just like Kelly, in need of a car. If you have a good, used vehicle to donate, please contact us -at 425-432-2119.
