Farewell to “Old Blue”

Saying farewell to a friend usually implies a person but in this case it happens to be a vehicle.  The Rescue Mission enjoyed the service of a 1984 Dodge van that was donated to us in 2001.  Steve Goralski, our men’s program director, said “It had more miles on it than the space shuttle.”  However, a week ago it burst into flames and after dousing the fire with five extinguishers, “Old Blue” is no more.  This was the only means of transportation for the men in our 12-month residential program, and we’re in desperate need of a replacement.  Please contact Rebecca at (805) 966-1316, if you’re able to help.
