Waiting for Wheels: Diana Cars for Caregivers

Diana has 3 beautiful children and works as a respiratory therapist at a local hospital making transportation an extreme challenge for her without her own vehicle. As a respiratory therapist, her hours don't always coincide with the local bus schedules. 
Public transportation to get her kids to school every day at 7:15 would mean leaving the house at 6 am or earlier and cost $6 a day. For her children's benefit she came up with the temporary solution of using Uber to take her children to school on time with a cost of only $7 a day. Even with her creative solutions of Uber and family whenever possible, it sometimes takes her 2 hours to get to work, and another 1 to 2 hours to get home. 

Diane has just been given the opportunity to move to the night shift. If she takes the position she will make an additional $3/hr. but in order to be able to accept the new schedule she will need her own vehicle, as no buses run at 3 am.

 
Diana qualifies for Wheels of Success' 
Cars for Caregivers program. Founded in 2010 from a generous contribution from the Tampa General Hospital Foundation, the Cars for Caregivers program helps Direct Care Workers ("DCW") improve the lives of their patients after the buses stop running. Getting to work without a vehicle is challenging for anyone, but especially for people who work in the evenings and on weekends when public transportation may not be available. As our CEO explained "Having reliable transportation enables caregivers to take care of their families so that they can take care of ours."
 
Do you have a car to donate to her?
