Valuable Learning Experience

Wednesday, May 31, 2017 7:33 PM

Destiny’s commute to DC is long and expensive.  Without a car, the twenty-minute journey turns into an hour.  Taking the metro and the bus can cost her up to $70 a week. Destiny has three children aged 2, 4 and 8.  Dropping them off at school and daycare takes an additional 30 minutes out of her long day. It has been becoming increasingly difficult to deal with her busy schedule.  “It is very hard to get up in the morning.  I wake up at five in the morning every day, and have to go to bed by nine-thirty.” Destiny’s transportation issues are affecting her children as well.  Her children want to participate in gymnastics, dance, track, and swimming, but this not possible without reliable transportation.

With this car award, everyday activities will no longer be a struggle.  Destiny will not have to walk to the store and can easily take her kids to the doctor.  She is thankful for the impact it will have on her children.  They will be able to gain valuable life experiences they were missing out on.  Destiny and her children are excited to go to Dinosaur World in Virginia, where they will study fossils, history, and more.  Her children are interested in dinosaurs and this will be an inspirational learning experience for them.  This car award will lead Destiny and her family to a successful future.
