Current Appeal

I come to you concerning a need that we face each year at the Mansion.

Earlier this year, we purchased a van with funds that were provided by the SFC fundraising drive; however, we desperately need to purchase an additional van as well.

To say that we get the most out of our vehicles is an understatement, as several of our vans have well over 200,000 miles on them. Melvin Raab, our Director of Physical Plant, is an excellent mechanic who is able to maintain our vehicles in good working order for as long as possible. Our practice, for the past several years, has been to purchase slightly used vans and retire older vehicles that are no longer road worthy or dependable.

We use our fleet of vans to transport the children to youth rallies, field trips, Bible Quiz tournaments, doctors’ visits, the mall and other miscellaneous trips in the region. You have shown us over and over again just how much you love this ministry and the precious children at Tupelo Children’s Mansion.

Once again I am asking for your help. Just as your support enables us to provide food, clothing, shelter, and education, I know that you understand that having dependable vehicles is also also very important.

THAT’S WHY I’M SENDING THIS URGENT APPEAL TO YOU!

PLEASE HELP US WITH THE FUNDING NEEDED TO REPLACE ONE VAN AND SET ASIDE FUNDS TO HELP OFFSET REPAIR COSTS ON SOME OF OUR OTHER OLDER VEHICLES.

Thanks for doing all that you can!

Sincerely,


Erma Judd
Executive Director
