Thanks again for your generosity!  Becki needed this car to keep her job.  She is a devout Christian who puts her children first.  Keep them in your prayers.

Consider an Easter donation to help more single moms

As we approach Easter, there are more moms who are finding us on our Facebook page who need our help.  They need a car to get or keep a job, to take care of their family.

Can you help us with a donation of a gently used car or a check?

Thank you!

Another car given away thanks to your generosity!

Thank you for helping us give April "the gift of a lift!"

Here is April's note back to Cars INC:

Thank you so much! Not having a vehicle is such a hardship for a single mom struggling to maintain a path to self sufficiency. I was in need of a miracle! Your consideration of us & generosity is truly a blessing.😊 Thanks again from April, Jasmine & Odinn.

Christmas Request

We have a new request from Christian Services to help a single mother from the Sparrow’s Nest program.  Jamie currently has a car which, as is often the case, has frequent issues and will not last much longer.  Jamie has her own cleaning business, so a car is essential to maintain her income, but she has not built up enough savings yet to afford to purchase one.  She has two children ages 9 and 4.

As some of you may know, the Sparrow’s Nest program was started by MaryAnn  Harkema, the founder and retired director of Christian Services, to enable single mothers to afford a mobile home. They pay a modest rent for 2 years and are required to take classes to manage money, and upon successfully completing the program, they are deeded the title to their mobile home.
This vetting enables us to be certain the car is being used as intended and to extend the assistance generated by others to get this single mother to be totally self-sufficient.

I hope you can support this very worth-while person, and remember, CarsINC (cars in the name of Christ) is a 501 (c)(3) organization, so any contribution to us is tax-deductible as a charitable contribution on your income tax return.

Please send contributions to:

Best personal regards and holiday greetings,

Celebrate your Dad by giving " the Gift of a Lift" today!

Father's Day will be here soon.  What better way to honor your dad, than by helping a single mom (or dad) with the gift of a gently used car?

Your donation to CarsINC helps us buy and refurbish gently used cars to give to women (and a few good men!) who need transportation to get to and from a job, in order to help support their family.

I will be giving "the gift of a lift" for Father's Day, to honor my Dad, Tom Repaskey, who works so hard to make sure other Moms (and dads) get a car that improves their lives.

Thanks, Dad!

Celebrate your mom with "the gift of a lift" for a single mother in need

Mother's Day will be here soon.  We have the perfect gift idea for the mom who has everything--a gift to CarsINC!

Help a single mom with your financial gift (or your used car!), so that we can buy a car for her to get her to and from work.  Some moms take the bus both ways, preventing them from working full-time because the bus ride is so long.

If you want to celebrate your Mom this Mother's Day, help us with your "gift of a lift!"
