Blessings of the Season

Blessings of the Season

Above all else, Frankie is a dedicated father to his sweet 4-year-old son. Frankie works hard to provide for his son but his daily commute is brutal with two connecting bus rides resulting in a 2.5-3 hour commute each way. Due to the unreliability of the public transit system, Frankie struggles to get to work on time despite leaving early. Not only that, but with the mounting costs of public transit (close to $400/ month), Frankie admitted that taking the bus each day takes a huge toll on his family’s finances.

Without personal transportation Frankie explained that the hardest thing is dealing with the elements – not only for himself but for his son. Currently, both father and son must wait outside – at times in freezing winds and rain – to get where they need to go. With winter just around the corner, Frankie explained, this vehicle could not come at a better time.

With his newly-awarded Honda Accord, Frankie’s commute will now be cut down to 20 minutes and his son will no longer have to wait in the cold and rain. Frankie described how this vehicle will offer him more opportunities in terms of employment advancement, but he is even more excited about his newly-awarded VFC vehicle for another reason. “I’m looking forward to visiting my family and going to more family gatherings. Especially with the holidays coming up, it will be great to visit my brothers and sisters!”

Frankie would like to thank his VFC car donor for their selfless generosity. “This is a huge blessing for me and my son.”
