The Gift of Transportation
What happens to the older cars that our Sisters no longer use? For the past couple of years, we have partnered with Big O Tires in St. Matthews of Louisville to donate them to single mothers who are in need of reliable transportation.
Jason Hammons, general manager of Big O, said his own family had donated some vehicles in the past, which inspired his boss, Joe Happel, to get involved with New Life Directions Ministries, a nonprofit that works with single parents to equip them to succeed in life. Jason collaborated with Rick Raderer, our director of campus services, in our donation of two cars to women who are in the New Life program. So, on Saturday, March 27, Kaitlin and Christina, two single moms in the New Life program, thought they were coming to a car maintenance class, but instead were surprised with flowers and two of our donated cars! President Sister Jean Anne Zappa was on hand for the big event and said the two women were very emotional as they received flowers and their cars. We are happy to help these two moms!
