Help Us Get a New Set of Wheels!
Currently, Flowering Branch has a 2003 GMC 14 passenger bus which has transported over 396 residents since March of 2005. While this constant use has taken a toll, our bus is still operating, but in poor condition and very inefficient on fuel.
Most of our kids are teenagers, and the somewhat dilapidated bus, taking up two lanes at car rider pick up is not "cool". At one time we had a 4-door sedan, but after many trips to the repair shop, it was finally sold for scrap metal. Having a van would allow staff to drive one vehicle for school pick ups and blend in beautifully with all the other mini-vans waiting in line.
It's important for our kids to fit in and feel accepted by their peers. If you are interested in contributing to our VAN FUND we will be forever grateful and remember, it's tax deductible, too. Checks can be mailed to Advocates for Children, P.O.Box 446, Cartersville, GA 30120. Cash can be donated by appointment by calling (770) 387-1143. All other payments are easily taken by clicking 'Make a Donation' above. Thanks so much for caring about kids in need.
