Thanks to generous donations we were able to provide 19 families, representing 32 children, with car repairs in 2020.  Over $10 thousand dollars was spent directly on car repairs.  This represented 93% of all expenses. The remaining expenses went to postage and insurance.

In our 9 years of helping others, we have been able to provide services to 120 families.  We thank God for your generous donations that allow us serve Him in this critical need.

The best way to kill coronavirus in your cars

We found this article regarding keeping your car “virus” clean. However, before you use any product, we recommend you read your car’s owner’s manual to be sure it is ok.

Experts are still trying to determine exactly how long the COVID-19 coronavirus can survive on different surfaces, but early indicators are that it can persist for days on hard plastics and metals.
You’ll find plenty of those in cars, which makes disinfecting frequently used ones a priority, especially if multiple passengers are involved. But while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Environmental Protection Agency have identified several cleaning products that work best on the virus, many of them, like those that contain bleach or hydrogen peroxide, can easily damage a vehicle’s interior surfaces and components and ammonia is bad for touchscreen displays.
However, there’s one category that’s generally fine, according to Consumer Reports: solutions with at least 70 percent alcohol.
A representative from automotive interior parts supplier Yanfeng told the organization that the company uses isopropyl alcohol to clean components in the factory and that it is safe on virtually everything it makes, from plastics to painted chrome and imitation leather.
It can also be used on the surface of fabric upholstery and real leathers, but soap and water are also effective, according to the report. However, scrubbing too hard can remove color, and leather should be treated with a conditioner after cleaning with any product.
