Preferably “ALIVE” as we already have a dead one… 😉
Many of you know that beyond helping families build their homes, we’re also doing all we can to help families in need. The tornadoes and river floodings have been brutal and our abilities are being taxed to the limits.
Well, one of the vehicles that we’ve been using to accomplish those goals has died a grim death (the motor has died beyond reasonable resurrection) and mechanics tell us that it simply isn’t worth repairing.
The weight of the loaded trailer being towed behind simply overwhelmed it and it finally died of old age…
So, we need a reasonably priced 4 door SUV or 4 door pickup truck, to be used as basic transportation and to haul goods and services up north.
It will be used to transport goods, provide assistance and transport people – primarily special needs people – to aid (hospitals and aid centers), carry volunteers, supplies and anything else we can carry to crisis centers and construction/salvage centers.
Please note that I’m not talking “NEW”. I’m talking about a vehicle several years old, in good running condition and very reasonably priced.
Note: I’m not asking anyone to GIVE/Donate/Loan us a SUV or truck. While that would be cool, it’s not realistic. We’re simply looking for a reasonably affordable vehicle.
We’re not looking for “show ponies”, we’re looking for utility vehicles. As long as it is safe, runs reliably and has a decent interior, we’re good to go.
We’re paying for this vehicle out of our own pockets, so price is really an issue here. If you have a vehicle that meets this description and are willing to let go of it inexpensively, well… you know what to do.
Anyone who has been reading this blog knows that for years, we’ve been helping as many people as we can. We want to continue that, in spite of the obstacles.
So, if any of you know of such an animal or have something suitable that you’d like to part with, please contact us ASAP.
