Help Russ get a new handicapped van

Hurricane Ida came ravaging through northern NJ and unfortunately took my handicapped van in her wake. The van was fully submerged for 3 days until the flood waters came down. We had it towed to a repair shop where it was declared totaled with no parts salvageable. Insurance will cover only the cost of the used van, but not the replacement cost of a new (used) van with all of the handicapped modifications. To buy a reliable replacement and have it modified to work with my handicapped chair, we are looking at a deficit of about $30K. Unfortunately due to covid, none of the public-access handicapped vans are running, so I have no way to get back and forth to my doctors appointments and to physical therapy. It has been my link to the outside world and a devastating loss. All funds received will be used by me to purchase a replacement handicapped van and make the necessary handicapped modifications to it.

Thanks in advance for considering assisting.

Sincerely,
Russell
