NCAP Vehicle Giveaway
Northwest Community Action Partnership has launched a vehicle giveaway event called “Give Hope a Ride.” A 2003 Suburban, in excellent condition, will be given away mid-May to a resident of either Dawes, Box Butte, Cherry, Sheridan or Sioux Counties.
This vehicle was generously given to NCAP for the purpose of helping a family in need of reliable transportation. Lack of a reliable vehicle can be a barrier to employment, school attendance, medical care, obtaining necessities, etc. and can have an adverse impact on a family or individuals ability to climb out of poverty.
Do you know of someone whose life could be changed with reliable transportation? Do you know an individual or family who lacks reliable transportation and faces adversity due to that fact? Applications are now available at www.ncap.info . Click on the GIVE HOPE A RIDE logo on the main page. Application deadline is April 30.
