We did it!!
Check out the “new” car PPC was able to present to Alisha Gadsden, who was one of our SACOH guests this fall.
When mechanics determined that Alisha’s 1999 van was not worth repairing, an appeal was made for a used car that might be available and for donations to purchase / repair a vehicle that would be dependable and safe.
Thanks to Bill and Kay Starnes, who found the like-new Chrysler PT Cruiser at Pete’s New & Used Cars in Monroe. It has only traveled 67,000 miles with one owner, so there is a lot of life left in it.
And thanks to all who donated to this cause, including the Deacons’ Fund.
Alisha was one of four guests who received hiring notices from Amazon in Concord, NC. Currently she and Shelly have started work. Becky and Julie are waiting for start dates, as training has stopped during the holidays.
All four are still at the shelter, and they will need time to save enough money to afford an apartment in the Concord area. Until then, transportation is a critical issue. This vehicle is expected to benefit all of them!
