Dream Bbq Food Bus Fire

$2,855 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 54 people in 12 days
My father has dreamed about owning his own bbq food truck for as long as I can remember. For years he has worked long hours, overtime, extra shifts, etc just to save enough money to purchase his own food truck.  About a year ago he was given that opportunity and purchased an old bluebird school bus that he vowed he would fix up and turn into his dream. Here we are today one year later. After many hard working hours his bbq bus was almost ready to open.
While celebrating the fourth of
 July with family and friends we learned about an rv storage unit that caught fire due to careless teens playing with fireworks. Yup you guessed it, dads bus was one of the 6 rvs that went up in smoke. His muscles are still sore from putting his final coat of paint on the outside just 5 days prior.          


These pictures were taken when he purchased the bus one year ago. 31099420_1530848075263657_r.jpeg31099420_1530848307609903_r.jpeg31099420_1530848337793975_r.jpeg 
Below is the progress he has made over the last year:

He even built in his own supply closet.

With new siding, electrical, and internal parts needed thousands of dollars have been lost. Unfortunately with no insurance to help, his dream of a bbq bus has gone dark. 

By donating to his dream we can promise you that every dollar will be used to restore this dream that he has worked so hard for. For some reason if we are unable to restore this bus the money will be used to purchase another used food cart that he can build up to something great. 
If anyone deserves this my dad does! A hard working family man just working really hard to make his dreams come true. Thank you for taking the time to hear us out and listening to our dream of a bbq food bus. Hopefully soon we will have something up and running for you to try some delicious food.
