A Drive to Succeed

“The car works great, thank you!”

Norma recently moved from Wyoming to the Springs to stay with her daughter and her boyfriend in their small apartment. She is starting life over without a phone, a vehicle to get to work, or her own place to live. This blank slate is overwhelming, especially when you have a low credit score making it more difficult. She started working as a housekeeper at a local hotel which requires reliable transportation to stay employed. Her daughter has been helping with rides but will be leaving the area soon. At that point, Norma will be stuck since she doesn’t qualify for a car loan and couldn’t afford to make payments anyway. 

Thanks to a referral to Big Table and our new compassionate friend (and car enthusiast) Willie, Norma now has a fixed-up Buick Enclave to get her to work on time… every time. We met Norma at the DMV and paid to have the car properly re-titled and registered, complete with plates. She was virtually speechless and beyond grateful to have this piece of her new life stabilized.

unexpected 20s

Want to get involved right now? Try sharing some U20s! This is a great place for individuals and small groups to start partnering with Big Table. Big Table provides small envelopes that you fill with $20 bills and give out when in a restaurant or hotel. Simple and amazingly effective. Look for one person working in a restaurant or hotel invisible to others, or one that is having a bad day. It very well could be someone in the kitchen or behind the scenes. Then give them the Unexpected 20 envelope with a $20 bill inside. Tell them it is simply a gift for them…no strings attached. This is not payment or a tip, it is a gift. After the Unexpected 20 is delivered email us with a story of what you noticed or felt at

Need envelopes? You can print your own or email to request some.

This is just one way to join Big Table’s mission to serve hope. Learn more about all the ways you can get involved below.
