Joy for my Family

I am a single mom of two. Currently I work for the school system as a bus driver which is a good job that allows me to spend time with my children out of school hours but also limits my income. When the kids are off school for a scheduled day or snow day, I don’t get paid. I am working hard to find a second job but have not found one yet. The Y brings such joy to my family and is a wonderful outlet for fun and extracurricular activities. Thank you for this privilege and opportunity to $500 receive financial assistance.
