CarsINC Celebrates 5 years of helping single moms with the "gift of a lift"
Since 2007, CarsINC (Cars In the Name of Christ) has given away 24 cars and one van to help single moms by giving them the gift of a free car. This "gift of a lift" allows these mothers to finally have transportation to get them to their job.
CarsINC is hoping to raise $3,000 before the end of the year to help two more single moms by giving them "the gift of a lift"--the gift of a new car--to help them get to and from their jobs.
The ministry of CarsINC began in 2007 when St. Paul's members Tom and Martie Repaskey gave away their Pontiac van to a single mom and friend who needed transportation to get to her job. They realized then that there were probably other single moms who needed a car to help them support their family. Now, a team works with Tom to identify cars and collect donations to rehab gently used cars and find moms who need them.
If you want to help give "the gift of a lift", please send your check to St. Paul's Episcopal Church (for CarsINC) 218 West Ottawa Street Lansing, MI 48933.
