Sidney needs a car

During hurricane Matthew,  my childhood bestie Gina Gonse Swoope's daughter  Sidney got caught in the rushing waters of the flood while driving to her dad's house in Virginia Beach, VA. Her mini-van was submerged in water and rendered undrivable due to the water damage. Gina is a single mom raising 2 children and could only afford liability insurance on Sidney's 2002 minivan. As a result  she did not have coverage to replace the vehicle. I want to help my friend by raising funds to get Sidney a replacement vehicle in this time of need. Sidney is a high school student and needs transportation since Gina is working full time. If you all could please find it in your hearts to donate whatever you can afford to help Sidney get back on the road, and relieve my friend Gina of this unexpected stress, I would greatly appreciate it. Every dollar helps towards the goal. Thanks for your consideration.
