LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette non-profit organization is now the owner of a donated car. A Lafayette man who decided to stop driving donated his 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue to Lafayette Urban Ministry.
Executive Director Joe Micon said LUM is selling the car. The proceeds will go to benefit the ministry and its programs. Micon said a donation like this happens a few times each year.
"Every once in a while we will get a car that has several thousands of dollars of value to it. We will turn around and offer those for sale. We will use that money for purposes of the Lafayette Urban Ministry. Serving children and helping their families," said Micon.
LUM helps local families in need with food, shelter and financial assistance. If you want more information on the car, click here.
