The Story

Hello everybody! We are reaching out to everyone within social media's reach to ask for help in getting 99 for the 1 where it needs to be. 
We would like to tell you what we've done so far and what we would like to do.

WHAT'S BEEN DONE
  1. We've purchased a sweet '79 Box truck
  2. We customized it with shelving and a donated stereo system.
  3. We've been collecting hygiene products, clothes and food to help the homeless.
  4. We've successfully reached some of the homeless community.
WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO

  1. Get a paint job. ( we've met an amazing artist that will be donating his time doing murals on both sides) Right now the van looks a little creepy and not approachable :( We need to pay for materials to have it done.
  2. We need to fix a couple of things on the van like Ball joints, headlights (only have high beams, tried a few things but nothing works), loose steering and a minor oil leak.
  3. Would like to install a shower, sink and changing station so people can clean up and put on fresh socks, deodorant, etc...
  4. Would like to have accessible power for hot meals and mini-fridge to give drinks.
  5. Would like to stock up on needed supplies. Hygiene products, food, socks, blankets, etc...
We know that there are people that need help and we want to meet that need. We don't want to give a hand out but more of a hand up. 
In Luke 15:4-7 it says this “Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue.
Wether you're a Christian or not we can all agree that homeless people have value too. Please help us make this dream come true. Thank you
