Get the Pool Party Moving

When I was a 21 year old senior in college, I bought my first car.
Since that time my family has changed and so have my needs.

On August 14th, my hometown was hit with record rainfall. As the water levels rose in our street and basement, my wife called me home. The two mile drive home from the office was a white-knuckle experience. By midnight we had 42 inches of water in our basement and our street looked like a lake.

That's our family van in the background. It stalled as I pulled up to the house. Within a few days, the van was deemed a "total loss."

The van was in great shape, well-maintained, and paid off.

We're asking for your help. If you'd like to support our family, this is one great way to do that. If you support our work of being agents of good in our community and support our home being an outpost of love, this is a great opportunity to show that support. Would you help us purchase reliable transportation for our family?

We're committed to putting at least $4,000 towards the purchase.

Your gift of $20, $50, even $10, or something more substanial, will help us achieve our goal.  Thank you for your support.

We have a rental car through Monday, August 25th. We'd prefer to purchase our vehicle at that time. Would you help us meet our goal in that timeframe?
