Disabled Lutheran Vietnam Veteran Needs a Car to Replace Stolen Vehicle Print E-mail

Request from Reverend Chris Browne and Our Saviour Lutheran Church on Neva Avenue in Chicago

On Friday, April 25th, LCC President Tim Hetzner received the following appeal from Reverend Chris Browne from Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Chicago, IL:
Cliff is a Vietnam veteran who also suffered injuries due to a fall, and wears a back brace. Although he is well enough to ride a bicycle to our church, he regularly needs to make trips to the VA Hospital for therapy and treatments. This was no difficulty for him until January 2014 when his car was stolen (he has given me a copy of the police report to verify this). Although up to this point, Cliff had been attending a nearby Bible church with his girlfriend; because of his Lutheran roots he also received the Northern Light through the mail. Something he saw there caused him to contact LCC in hopes of receiving a replacement vehicle for his, which was stolen.

Since then, Cliff has attended worship services at Our Saviour (Neva Avenue) on a weekly basis. He is a very energetic (even restless) person, who seems genuinely interested in helping others and the church when he can. Cliff is a retired engineer and is able to make repairs to a car that may require it.

If you know of a vehicle for Cliff, please call Lutheran Church Charities at 866-455-6466 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Seven Vehicles Needed for Washington, Illinois Families Print E-mail
Washington Illinois tornado vehicles needed LCC received the following request through Pastor Tom Heren of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Washington, Illinois. Debbie McDade is a resident of Washington, Illinois and has been helping many of the people of Washington get back on their feet after the November 17, 2013 EF4 tornado. Right now her group of volunteers is teaming up with Our Savior Lutheran Church to raise awareness for seven families that have lost their vehicles in the tornado and did not have car insurance that would cover it. Here is her request:
Good morning,

My name is Debbie McDade and I live in Washington, Illinois. On November 17th, an EF4 tornado damaged or destroyed 1300 homes in my small community. Since that first day, I have been working hard at helping our displaced residents get into homes and getting the things they need to try to get back to some kind of normal until they can rebuild their homes in Washington.

There are several of us volunteering in this way. About three weeks ago, I called Lutheran Church Charities about the possibility of helping us get some donated cars for those families that lost their cars and are not able to replace them because of finances. If you are able to help, this will be orchestrated through our local Lutheran church, Our Savior, with the help of Lutheran Church Charities. LCC has been one of our best supporters throughout this whole thing (tornado recovery process).

Most of the people on my list are from the Georgetown Commons Apartments where most residents were barely making it from paycheck to paycheck. A few others are people that I've met during this process that I would like considered for a gifted vehicle. Here is the list of people in need (names have been taken out for their personal security):

  • Washington Illinois tornado Vehicles NeededThis gentleman is a Ranger in the US Army and has twice been deployed to combat in Iraq. He suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is progressing very well with help from the local VA. He has started taking other PTSD vets to counseling with him. He has a 6-year-old daughter that he will be getting custody of soon. His truck needs a new engine so he is using his brother's car. It has no back brakes and needs a lot of work to become safe for driving, but It's his only option.
  • This woman's vehicle was totaled by the tornado. She cannot afford to fix it or make the payments on it. She just started a new job in Washington two weeks before the storm and drives from across the river to work daily. She would be happy with any vehicle, but would really love a truck or van so that she could someday do dog rescues again.
  • This woman is a 45-year-old mother of an adult child with disabilities. She's a full time nursing student living on student loans and a Pell grant. Her vehicle was also totaled in the tornado. She took the rest of her savings and bought a used SUV, trying to be responsible for herself and get to her classes. The car ran for 36 days and the engine threw a rod. The dealer that sold it to her will do nothing to help her. She has been using a car rented by a charity, but that is no longer an option for her.
  • This man was visiting his son's home the day of the tornado. The neighbor's tree smashed his car and his son's truck. The neighbor has moved away and is not rebuilding. We have not been able to find a way to get a hold of them. He still owes $10,000 on the car that was totaled. He bought it about a year and a half ago. He only had liability on it though because it sits in that driveway whenever he travels by bus back to Mexico City to spend time in the home he built for his family.
  • The mom of this family of five gave birth to their 3rd child a couple of hours after the tornado and is known locally as "Tornado Mom". They lost everything that day, and while they got a lot of help right after the storm, they still need help. They have a small car and have not been able to replace their other vehicle that was destroyed. The husband works road construction and has been laid off for the winter season. Even a mid-sized car would be a huge improvement for this family of five.
  • The mom of this family of five was in the Army as a medic and was a First Responder at the Georgetown Commons apartments on Nov 17th. They have three daughters, aged 6, 5, and 1 year old that they are raising. They are crippled by medical bills. Their first daughter was a St Jude kid and went through several rounds of chemo trying to save her life. In a last ditch effort, they removed half of her liver. Miraculously she has been 'cured' since then. Their 5 year old has been diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis and because it's an autoimmune disease and not a blood disease or cancer, she will not be considered to be a St Jude kid. She has gone completely blind in her left eye and is losing sight in her right eye. There is no drug that can help her arthritis that is approved for children so they have to pay for an adult drug that she has been taking for 2 years, but has taken her beyond the 18 months she had been given. The mother has been in the hospital a few times with health problems of her own since Christmas, and the father lost his job last week. His employer said he is not entitled to FMLA. Every month or month and a half the mother takes the middle child to Chicago to see her doctors, leaving the father without a car.
  • This gentleman and his fiance are living with her uncle that broke his leg in the tornado. They take care of him. The car they had was destroyed by the tornado and now they walk or get a ride from someone if they go anywhere. They were living in a condo that was leveled that day. The neighbor on the other side seems to have disappeared and they can't rebuild if he doesn't too, unless they buy his half, which they can't afford. They are really stuck. This gentleman is really suffering from PTSD from the tornado and is trying to find counseling but with no car his options are pretty limited.

I know this is a long list, but we would be happy with anything you can help us with.

God bless you all and again, thank you,
Debbie McDade

Family in Need of a Car Print E-mail

Request from Pastor Dave Bass of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Norwood Park, Illinois

LCC received the following request through Pastor Dave Bass:
Pastor BassMy name is Cali and, along with my family, am a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church on Canfield. I'm writing a request for a vehicle because I'm currently a full time student downtown, my mother is currently unemployed, and my 3yr old daughter attends Lutheran Unity West full time. Presently, our family relies on public transportation to get to school, church, grocery shopping, etc. During decent weather, this isn't much of a problem... but with winter approaching, a vehicle would be a huge blessing to us. My main concern is getting my daughter to and from church and school safely in the winter. If you could help in any way it would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Cali & Family

Incoming Venezuelan Pastor to St. Martini, Milwaukee, in Need of a Car Print E-mail

Request from St. Martini Lutheran Church, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

sanctuary.jpg St. Martini Lutheran Church is part of the Hispanic Lutheran Ministry in Wisconsin. Their new Pastor, Reverend Alfonso Prada, had arrived in Milwaukee from Venezuela late last year. He was installed on September 20, 2013. He and his wife are in need of a vehicle in order to assist them in carrying out the mission work among the Hispanic families of 270 school students at St. Martini, a small inner-city congregation with a large outreach to the community through their school. St Martini does not have the resources to provide Pastor Prada with a car. The donation of a reliable vehicle would be a great blessing to St. Martini and the Hispanic community they serve.

Faith Lutheran in Troy, Michigan Looks for Donated Car to Help Immigrants Learn to Drive Print E-mail
Car Request Hameed Altai, Director of International Missions at Faith in Troy, Michigan helps immigrant families assimilate into life in the United States. Crucial to that transition is attaining a driver's license. Getting a license and a used car solves 75% of the problems for families according to Altai. Faith offers new immigrants and refugees driver's education so they can get their licenses. They use the church parking lot to teach driving skills and also prepare them for the written portion of the test. Hameed explains the need for at least one additional car to help this ministry.
For the present time I am using my private car to teach the students how to drive. However, the number of students is growing and one car is not enough to do the job. The demand for getting a driver license is huge and the need for used cars is big too. My request is to pray for me to get a used cars so we can use it to teach the students the driving system and to help them to get a driver license also to help them to get their first car. That will be a great help and will solve a big problem for the new immigrants and refugees. Thank you my friend and may the peace and the mercy of the Lord be with you.

If you would like to donate a car for this ministry through LCC please contact us at (866) 455-6466 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Pastor Paul Klopke of Living Christ Arlington Heights Seeks Car for Woman in Need Print E-mail
Pastor Klopke Pastor Paul Klopke has asked LCC to share the need of a woman in his community for a working vehicle. He writes...
Several months ago (September 2, 2012) Living Christ held an outreach event called "The Church has Left the Building". We went to McDonald's, nursing homes, a laundry mat, a community song fest and department store parking lots doing many acts of kindness. At one location (the Wheeling laundry mat) the owner was taken so much by our generosity that she recommended to a woman who was in need to park her old and dying car some place to call Living Christ Church. She said, "This church helps people in need".

Marcy contacted me three weeks ago and I allowed her car to stay on our parking lot temporarily. Many prayers have been offered up for her and her car. Several days ago she has informed me that she sold her car and that it will be picked up by the end of the week. God is good! Marcy who works part time and is underemployed still needs a car.
If you know of anyone that has a used car that they would like to donate to the church for this needful woman please contact LCC at (866) 455-6466 or email LCC at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for details on how to make a car donation.
