Wyoming couple stranded/living in car – September 2, 2017

A couple from Wyoming was passing through Summerville when their car broke down. Both of them were on disability, the husband being a multiple amputee.  Both of them also appeared to struggle mentally as their plans and thought process often made no sense.  Their car, although not that old and appeared in decent shape, needed extensive repairs to the engine and suspension that was beyond its value or their means to pay.  The local repair shop was letting them live (for 3 weeks) in the disabled car in the parking lot of the establishment while they worked on their plans.  They had made tentative arrangements to purchase a used car from one of the repair shop mechanics at the beginning of the month when they got their disability payments but it was not a definite.  Change for a Dollar offered several options to help but they could not decide on what to do.  In the end they were short a few hundred dollars for the purchase of the car and Change for a Dollar offered to assist with the purchase to help them on their way.
