My name is Tony and I have a large family, we are 6. There's my wife Heather ashley 14, eric 13, hailey12 and David 5. We are in need of a vehicle but can't afford one. We are borrowing a toyota tacoma truck that seats 3 but really 2 1/2 so we can't go anywhere as a family. And to top that off, we can't even go to church. We are having to pay $400 per month for this truck and insurance, and with limited income it is taking valuable money away from our rent, putting us behind this month. So we are doing everything we can to prosper here, and figured we have not because we ask not, so I am asking. Poeple donate vehicles to secular oganizations every day, so why can't there be a person out there that can donate a good drivable vehicle to a needy family? I know God is going to give us a vehicle, just don't know how or who it is through, but out faith says "this will happen". We can't even really fit in a mini vanwe had one and my children are so large, they could barely fit, so I would need either a full size van or a large SUV like a Suburban, gas hogs I know, but we really don't go far around town, wo it doesn't mater that much. I don't care what it looks like as long it is in good sound mechanical condition and has 3 rows and doesn't need any repairs right now, as we can't afford a pennies worth right now. If you either have or know of someone or an organization that does, please call us @ Moderator cut: No solicitation I am not GOD obviously, but I honestly believe he will bless the people that do this for us.

From the Villar family, Thanks from the botom of our hearts!
Tony, Heather Ashley, Eric, Hailey and David

If you are borrowing a truck, how come it is costing $400 a month?

I am bit confused as to why your family of six won't fit in a mini-van. Those vehicles typically hold 7 to 8 very comfortably - depending on the middle seat configuration. Still, a very nice vehicle for a 6 member family.

You state the family can't go to church. Most churches have a van that will pick you up. Contact your church to see about transportation. Once you get there, discuss your need for a vehicle and see if they can help.

I'm confused as to why six people can't fit in a car.

Something sounds fishy about this story. If he goes to Church then the Church should be able to help him. It's hard to believe that insurance and up keep on a car is $400 per month. May be if it includes gas. I guess I have lived in Miami too long. I hope the family finds a suitable car.

He has hid behind "the church" most of his adult life. He is almost $10,000 behind in his child support payments which are only $144/month for his 15 y/o daughter that he doesn't even acknowledge anymore. I hope no one helps him, he doesn't deserve it! Deadbeat!

Crazy .......... I am in "need" of many things too....lol.... however, they are all luxuries and not neccesities. If you were in need of food or shelter from the cold I might think of helping you out.

Why dont you make several trips back and fourth in toyota truck to get everyone to Church. Perhaps cancel the internet service or sell the computer you used to post this message. Just a few suggestions
