Transportation Needed for Tornado Victims
Godspeed Ministry and Car Care Ministry is asking for vehicles to be donated so that we can meet the need created by the May 19 and 20 tornados.
We have a need for serviceable automobiles that need little or no repair so that we can get them to the people that have an immediate need. You will receive a fair market value deduction for your donation of a car that is given to an approved applicant.
Godspeed Ministry has been helping single moms, families in need and the elderly with donated transportation for over ten years.
Godspeed Ministry needs your help to help others. Please donate what you can. Our resources will run out quickly. Money for supplies to restore donated cars, parts and tires will allow Car Care Ministry to continue to bless those in need.
Car Care Ministry also has a need for volunteers to prepare these cars for donation. All skill levels, window cleaners to certified technicians will be put to work. We will post times and location on Carcareministry.org.
If you have a car to donate, or would like to help with any other resource, please call or text Larry Smiley at 405-834-4301. I will respond to every text and call.

How it works:
When God lays it upon someone’s heart to donate a serviceable vehicle to Godspeed Ministries, the Car Care Clinic gets busy. The vehicle is inspected by qualified individuals for what it may need to insure it will be a safe and dependable means of transportation. Minor repairs are performed and checked for quality control and performance to bring the vehicle up to a reasonable state of safe reliability. Not everything identified is repaired. Often a reliable vehicle may have cosmetic/comfort needs that are not relative to safety and it is not cost effective to pursue restorative type repairs. Safety is the main concern. The members and providers at the Car Care Clinic make a conscientious effort to address this vital step as a personal commitment to those who will benefit from this unique outreach of Godspeed Ministries to bless God’s people.
Godspeed Ministries meets the need:
Godspeed Ministries receives applications for help with transportation needs. Vehicle recipients must first go through churches or local civic groups in order to meet the guidelines for receiving said vehicle.
When an applicant is approved and it is established that they need reliable transportation, they must have a valid driver’s license and be able to pay for insurance, tag, title and transfer. At that point Godspeed Ministries will provide the individual or family a vehicle at no cost as fits the need.
This vital ministry helps recipients with the mobility they need to attend church, maintain employment, go grocery shopping, visit loved ones and so much more! What a wonderful event that God, through this ministry, makes possible and all because someone donated a vehicle to Godspeed Ministries. Praise God!!
