Days like this make the more difficult days of running Inspire all worth it! We are so thankful for another car donation to one of our very deserving youth, Shakera. Mark and Marsha Churchman have made a direct impact on Shakera's life! Not only will the car bring additional independence, but this gift tells Shakera and our other youth that they matter and are not forgotten. #inspirefoster #changinglives #theinspirefamilyrocks #youthheroes
