A working car

This family of five is in need of a family car. Their previous car had over 300K miles on it and will require over 5K to repair. Both parents work and 3 kids are in Shoreline Schools. Their wonderful family is always finding ways to give their time to the community. Would be great if someone was considering donating a car. This family could really use one.
