Vehicles Needed for Car Ministry

Do you have, or know someone who might have, a car that you would be willing to donate to our car ministry? Our car ministry seeks to provide transportation for our prison ministry partners, and others, who are transitioning back into society and need a hand up during that transition. We are looking for vehicles that can be affordably made safe and reliable. We would be glad to provide a donation tax letter for tax purposes. Please call or email the church office if you would like to donate or might have a good lead for us! Union Grove United Methodist ChurchPastor Rich Greenway 919-929-4597rogreen@bellsouth.net
