Need: $170,000 - Wouldn’t it be great if vehicles could run forever? Unfortunately, they don’t, and our vehicles are growing less reliable. With good stewardship, we have been able to drive our passenger vans up to the point of nearly 200,000 miles. However, at this point, it is more cost-effective to replace these vehicles rather than continue maintenance. Still, more importantly, we always seek to prioritize the safety of our children. When transporting children to church, events, and appointments, we need to ensure that we can depend on our transportation to get them and our staff there safely. The Suburbans in need of replacement are used for thrift store pick-ups, pulling trailers, food collections, and transporting children. The Suburbans we currently use have more than 200,000 miles and it would be more worthwhile to replace them rather than to continue repairs.
