Thanks for cars, too

The S.C. Foster Parent Association (SCFPA) would like to thank everyone who donated vehicles to its On the Road Again program. This program provides transportation for foster youth who are 18, but not yet 21, actively employed and pursuing a GED or post-high school educational program. Without a vehicle, young people must rely on public transportation to get them to and from work or school. Unfortunately, public transportation is not available in many rural areas of South Carolina.
