New alternator for homeless man’s truck - Feb 10, 2016

A disabled homeless man living at Summerville’s homeless shelter for men, the Lowcountry Home of Hope, has a late model truck.  He uses the truck to do occasional paint jobs to supplement his small disability check.  Recently the truck broke down on his way to MUSC for some medical treatments.  Thankfully his insurance covered getting it towed back to the shelter.  A friend of one of the shelter staff who is an auto mechanic offered to install the alternator free of charge if he could get one.  Change for a Dollar paid for the alternator for the mechanic to install.  The vehicle is back on the road.

Rebuilt alternator for truck - $80
