Kim Hoppe Replacement Handicap Van

On Friday, July  7, 2017 Kim Hoppe's life changed. She was driving to the store in the van she purchased and retrofit for her disabled son, Paul. She was hit by a young driver who was traveling upwards of 90 miles per hour.  In the aftermath, Kim has had two surgeries, severe pain, and her only mode of transportation is now totaled. 

A new van that is barrier-free and handicap accessible (retrofit) costs approximately $40,000. Because of her injuries, Kim and Paul are both wheelchair bound. Funds are needed by September 15th in anticipation that she will be able to drive.
