Cars For Kids, 2016
Melissa, 21, is currently a student at Palm Beach State College studying early childhood education. With no family nearby, Melissa was forced to rely on friends and public transit to get around – a constant challenge to get to class and work on time because of often spotty bus service. After missing many classes and work shifts, and her education and employment were put in jeopardy, she was pressured into purchasing a car with a predatory loan rate of 24%. Having a new car will free Melissa from crushing debt and stress and allow her to focus on completing her education while affording her basic needs.
