Thanks to a generous $3000 gift in honor of a donor's Mother, and her great idea; we were able to start the "
Motors for MOM's" program this month!
A used car was purchased and mechanics volunteered their time as we purchased parts to get it in optimal shape. One of our residents at SFTSM had no vehicle and she and her two teen aged daughters walked to work, school and every other place they needed to go. This resident was able to purchase this car for 25% of what we put into it for parts. So, for about $400 (plus insurance) she now has reliable transportation for the first time in a very long time and is very grateful!
We hope to use that money and the funds remaining from the original $3,000 to either purchase or rehab a vehicle donation for the next family.
We currently have a young mother with 6 children and no vehicle - we are looking for a VAN for her.
If you know of anyone who would like to donate a vehicle to SFTSM for the Motors for Moms program, please contact Executive Director Tami Fleming at 608-478-4465 or via email button below.
