Our Army Iraq veteran, Sam, had a few hours with the kids before he went into work at 5pm today. So he took his sons along to help him with an emergency vehicle repair to earn some money for his back taxes. He showed the boys how to replace brake pads/calipers and bleed the lines. Since then, several people have requested Sam’s on-site* mechanical expertise. Sam must have his entire tax payment of $947 before January 14, 2016 in order to keep his house from the LRA. If you’d like to make a donation or have a job for him, please text or call PRTR at 314.467.0127 or e-mail our executive director at Natalie@projectraisetheroof.org for Sam’s contact information.
(Please note: Donations made to assist with real estate taxes are not tax-deductible. Also, on-site repairs work best if you live on a low-traffic street, or have a yard or driveway where the work can be done safely and without inconveniencing your neighbors.)
