Car for Preston

Donation protected
Preston was at school and during practice someone went into the locker room and stole his phone, cards, ID and the keys to his car. This car was bought for him with the funds he received from the passing of his father in Iraq. it was like a final gift from him. The kids that stole his stuff then stole the car, wrecked it and took off. Sadly the kids got a citation, the school apologized, and the insurance will not cover it. (Liability only)
Prestons Mom and step-dad are both veterans. Preston is in JROTC and also has some plans to serve in the military. He currently wrestles and plays football for his high school.
Preston is a good kid and I want to show him that there is good in this world also. Let’s show him
when someone does something bad, good can still overcome it. Let’s help Preston replace his car. We can’t make it all better for him, we can’t replace the Sentimental aspect of his car but we can make another car have the reminder of friends, family and community coming together for to show him some love and support. Every little bit will help:)I put Preston’s mom, Mary Jo Yager Kappel as the beneficiary for this account since Preston is a minor.
