Making the Doctors Appointments

Monday, February 6, 2017 5:50 PM



Michelle Morris only lives seven minutes away from her job, so why does her daily commute take 30 minutes? Because the mother of five has to rely on public transportation. Without a vehicle, Michelle struggles to get her children to school on time. Her 12-year-old can’t participate in volleyball after school because she has no way of picking him up afterward.

It is difficult for Michelle to get her children to doctor’s appointments, which are crucial because her daughter suffers from an unknown diagnosis requiring 3-4 doctors visits a month. Michelle struggles to take her daughter to her appointments and make it back home at a reasonable time to take care of the rest of her children. The kids miss out on fun trips and outings because the bus fare for 6 is so expensive.

Michelle and her children are beyond excited for their car award. They look forward to spending more quality time with each other. Michelle also plans on paying the kindness forward. She will use her car to help her elderly aunt commute to work and perform everyday tasks.
