Mom’s First Car

Amanda Serio has three children ages 12, 8 and 2. It is hard for her and her children to get places when relying on public transportation. Amanda has had to walk a mile to and back from the grocery store, sometimes walking in the cold or heat with many grocery bags.

Amanda uses her mom or grandma’s car to get to work. Sometimes if they need the car, her friends help out and drive her. She has had to cancel doctor’s appointments for her children when she didn’t have a ride. Her children are also not able to go on play dates because they have no way of getting there.

Amanda will use her new car to take her children to play dates. She plans on taking her kids to ocean city for vacation. This will be Amanda’s first car, so she will be sure to keep it clean and detailed.
