On Wednesday, April 25th AHTN received heartbreaking news that our vehicles parked at Emmaus Road Church had been vandalized. Due to the extent of the damage to the vehicles, we were unable to send our bus out to take our friends in need to a shared meal that night. These damages crippled our Wheels to Meals and Those in Need mission and left us at a standstill.
Thankfully our friends at Bertrand’s Auto were able to have our bus repaired quickly, but we are currently still without our TIN Van. We now have the added expenses of insurance deductibles, locking gas caps and security camera installation that we have not budgeted for.
Thank you to the Bucks County Courier Times and 6 ABC for your coverage of the damage to our vehicles.
