Angel Cars Program, which gives used cars to families in need, seeking donations
A Sioux City assistance program is looking for donations.
Tires, Tires, Tires and the Community Action Agency's Angel Cars program is in need of donated cars.
Cars in the program are usually given to single parent families who can't afford reliable transportation on their own.
It's been a month since the program has given away a vehicle.
"Transportation is really difficult, I think especially for single parent families. And so this opens up a whole new world for them if they have a car," said Jean Logan, Executive Director of the Community Action Agency of Siouxland.
Logan tells us, the initial purchase of buying a car is usually too much for these families and that's where the Angel Car program comes in.
"A lot of the families would be able to maintain a car and put gas in a car, maybe get the oil change, but that initial investment of such a big asset is just beyond the reach of some of these families in Sioux City," Logan said.
Donated cars don't need to be in working condition, the program works with business to get them up and running.
