A Dream Come True!
David recently heard about our Shuttle program to help people leave poverty by helping them overcome transportation barriers. He decided to change a life...he bought Natasha who rides on our Shuttle a car. Today in the midst of the Snow storm we met at the Chittenango Auto dealer and signed the paperwork.
Tears of joy and hugs went around!
Now Natasha and her children have transportation giving her the opportunity to complete her education which will double her income. She also will help others who need a ride to work.
This car will transform her life and people she helps.
David was a neighbor helping another neighbor. Now Natasha will do likewise and more people will have opportunities to get jobs.
If you have a car that you would like to donate to change neighbors life, contact us. If you don’t have a car but would like to help someone get a job, please donate to our efforts. Together we can make a difference.
