Tri-County Christian School of Spruce Pine, NC, is in dire need of upgrading our current van (purchased new in 2000, this Dodge Ram now 16 years old, has over 100,000 miles, lots of exterior rust, with several mechanical problems also beginning to surface). Safety is a priority at TCCS because we haul the most precious cargo-our students! Our daily operating budget has no extra funding for transportation upgrades, so this is why we ask you to prayerfully consider this ministry need for your tax deductible donations. TCCS, founded in 1983, seeks to challenge the students academically, nurture them spiritually, while loving each one individually. We use the van very frequently to transport our students for academic enrichment, as well as to community service projects and volunteer work; our students serve the community through presenting music & drama programs at the local nursing homes, volunteering at Samaritan's Purse, Manna Food Bank , etc., helping mission work locally or globally. Thank you for your donations-we are considering purchasing a slightly used van to make our goal more affordable, happen sooner, and to wisely use the money so kindly donated to us. We are honored and humbled by your partnership with us!
