M3 Natasha Adeloye had a problem. Repairing the dent in her car would cost $400. Her insurance deductible was $1,000. She’d end up paying more than double the amount of the repair cost if she filed an insurance claim – and she didn’t have $400 to fix her car.
“Someone told me about the Society and their Quick Assist Loan program,” Natasha says. “I went to their San Antonio office, filled out some paperwork, and the NMCRS volunteer gave me a check for $400. I got my car fixed.”
“If not for the Society, I would’ve had to charge the $1,000 deductible on my credit card. Being able to repay the Society’s interest-free loan was a lifesaver.”
A couple months after her car repair, Natasha entered a contest at her bank to win $1,500 in cash- half for the winner and half for a charity. Natasha won!
She knew immediately that she’d donate half of her winnings to the Society. ‘Tm grateful for the help they gave me,” she says. The other half went into her savings account.
Because of you, we were there for Natasha when she needed us. Now, she’s helping other Sea Service members just as she was helped. Because of your generosity Natasha chose to pay it forward.
