Help with Damage Costs of Car Vandalized at MSU

Hi, my name is Jack, and I’m a student at the University of Michigan. This past weekend I was staying with some friends at Michigan State University for the big game. I drove my grandmother’s 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis up to East Lansing and parked it on the street of their house. On the night of Saturday, October 30, while my friends and I were out, a crowd of people congregated and proceeded to vandalize the car rendering it totaled. This car held great sentimental value to my family as it had been driven by my sister, my cousins, and my grandmother and late grandfather before me. It was absolutely gut-wrenching to witness its destruction in the many videos that surfaced online, and we hope the perpetrators will be held accountable for their actions. In the meantime, my family now has to deal with the financial aftermath caused by these reckless actions. In the conditions it was in and based upon online vehicle valuation tools, the Grand Marquis was worth about $8000. The towing fee tacks on an additional $500. Unfortunately, we do not have collision insurance, so all of this will be coming out of pocket. We then humbly ask for donations from anyone who is willing to give. Any amount will help to ease this financial burden. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

On behalf of my entire family, we thank you greatly and hope you consider giving.
