Glencoe Widower / Single Mom of Five in Need of a Six Passenger Vehicle


A Glencoe widower on a very limited income is in need of a vehicle. She is a single mom of five and does not have a functional vehicle. Unknown to her, the vehicle she purchased was previously owned by somebody who lived up north, and there is a significant amount of rust on the vehicle. We had somebody inspect the vehicle in hopes that we could pay for the repairs, and they said that it would be pointless to repair the vehicle due to the amount of rust. One of the children has extensive health issues that require the mom to travel to many different doctors’ appointments. The newborn also needs to travel to appointments. We are coordinating with a local business to identify a vehicle. We are accepting monetary donations. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Jennifer McGriff at (256) 393-0333.

SPAN of Etowah County is in Need of Transportation for Students


SPAN of Etowah county is in need of a 15 passenger van. SPAN serves middle and high school students who are in need of a non-traditional school setting. This program supports students who are at risk of dropping out of school or are in need of a second chance for various reasons. The SPAN program offers academic, emotional, and career counseling support for students and their families. Their goal is to ensure that all students in Etowah County have the opportunity to complete their diploma. SPAN is an invaluable program in Etowah County. Without them, many students would not be able to receive their high school diploma. Without a van, they are unable to take their students to their necessary appointments as well as field trips related to their future careers. If you would like to help or have resources that you would like to share with us, please contact Jennifer McGriff at (256) 393-0333. Help us secure transportation to ensure the success of ALL students.
