Help Punks with Lunch get a van!

West Oakland Punks with Lunch is crowd funding for a van!

In the past year, PWL has grown significantly! We've expanded our outreach, distribute more supplies than ever, and have gained access to the food bank which allows us to provide pantry items to our participants! This has been an amazing year, but we have come into an issue: WE NEED A VAN!

Traditionally, PWL has relied heavily on volunteer cars for getting donations, transporting supplies, and doing mobile outreach. The burden of carrying heavy loads has caused wear and tear on volunteers cars and sometimes we just don't have access to the transportation we need to conduct services.

So, we are asking for your help to help us buy a van that will help us get donations, help us with outreach, etc.

We are asking for $40,000 as our base fundraising goal.

We estimate:
  • $25,000 - Van (used but in good condition)
  • $6,400/year - Gas/Insurance/Registration
  • $8,600 - Maintenance

Any extra funds will go to fixing up the inside and making sure it fits our needs!

Any and all help is appreciated!
