Urgent need of a foster family

Please consider helping this amazing couple with a financial gift to help them cover the cost of a vehicle. They have 2 biological teenage daughters & currently have 2 foster children under the age of 8. A recent accident has resulted in their van being totalled. They are now left with a 3 seater truck that isn't reliable with high mileage & a donated minivan also with high mileage.  All involved in the accident are ok, still recovering from injuries. The other driver's insurance paid for a rental van for a few weeks but they opted to turn it in when the insurance would no longer cover the cost. As you may imagine, the overworked & underfunded foster system is not able to provide much financial support for regular everyday expenses for the fosters. A lot of their expenses are paid directly by the family & are not reimbursed. They would prefer to not have to go into debt for this need. It would be an amazing blessing to this family to have some financial help in covering the cost of a replacement vehicle that can accomodate the whole family. With 4 kids in 3 different schools & both parents working full-time, the need for reliable transportation is urgent. Any amount will help! If you are unable to help financially, please consider adding this sweet family to your prayer list & praying for God's provision in all areas of their daily lives, not just this specific need. All proceeds will go directly to the family. Thank you so much! [Last name & children's names have been withheld for privacy reasons]
