These posters hang here in our lobby area. Each tell the story of hope, empowerment and the positive impact our Fix It Forward Ministry has on the lives of the most needy in our community. These individuals are some of the many who have been uplifted by their mission and we will continue our commitment to God's great work here with the help of you our Fix It Forward Auto Care customer and the many incredible ministry volunteers.
Without reliable transportation, it is difficult to get or maintain a job, and without a job, it is hard to maintain your independence and dignity. As one might imagine, transportation issues are huge in our community and the need is overwhelming. Unlike many bigger cities, people often can’t just take a bus to work, school, or appointments because our public transit system has limited hours and locations. Additionally, utilizing public transportation can take hours. This creates challenges when trying to get kids to daycare and get to work. It is especially challenging for single parents.
Fix It Forward Ministry is our 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity. Our goal is to remove the transportation barrier for needy members of our community thus helping enable them to be independent and self-sufficient. This is accomplished in two ways. First by providing free car repairs to needy individuals, to help keep their vehicles on the road and safe. Second by repairing donated vehicles and giving them to needy members in our community who do not have a vehicle or whose vehicle is beyond repair. We utilize volunteer labor, discounted parts, and charitable donations to cover the costs of repairs.
All work is performed here at Fix It Forward Auto Care after business hours and on weekends. The same faces you see everyday at Fix It Forward Auto Care are the same faces that run the Ministry. Some serve on the Board Of Directors while others provide leadership, guidance and technical assistance to our teams of volunteers who work on the cars.
Introducing Fix It Forward Ministry Thousand Car Campaign. A campaign to reach our goal of giving away our thousandth car within the next five years. We are fast approaching car number 300, so we have approximately 700 cars to put in the hands of those most in need in our community by 2026.
The 1000 car campaign is not just our announcement of this audacious goal, but also a plan of how we are going to get there. In order to give away 1000 cars by 2026, we need to over double our throughput. This will require more volunteers, increasing our workspace and money raised. To find more volunteers, we are actively approaching churches and schools such as our partnership with M-state and Fargo Public Schools . By adding more Fix It Forward locations, we increase the space we have to store and repair cars. For fundraising, we are asking people to pledge to support us yearly for the next five years.
There are multiple ways you can help. Donate your time and become a volunteer and try your hand at fixing vehicles. Donate to the thousand car campaign by becoming a yearly donor. Your generosity will put the needed parts in the hands of our volunteers as they make the repairs. You can donate a vehicle that we can repair and re-donate. And finally, become a customer of Fix It Forward Auto Care.
Your support will ensure its success, which will in turn ensure the success of our Ministry and this important thousand car campaign. God's blessings.
