We need a van for our youths. We are located in central Long Beach where all of our youths are "at risk". These are inner city minority kids that often goes unnoticed by mainstream society. Crime and violence is an everyday norm. They are abled bodies with lots of energy and needs a positive outlet. Many of our youths do not have transportation. Some have never been outside of the city! We want to expand their horizons by exposing them to different places to show them that there is more "out there". A van may not seem like much, but for our kids, it would make all the difference. Some of our teen-agers have never been camping, fishing or even gain access to programs just across town!
A mode of transportation would make all the difference, thanks to your investment... and yes, it would be an INVESTMENT in thier lives.
A Ford 2012 E-Series Wagon would be ideal. A newer model would free us from repairs. Starting MSRP is about $35K. After taxes, fees, registration, etc... we estimate $45-$50K
