A van used by a Spokane non-profit to transport homeless families was vandalized over the weekend.
Board members for Family Promise of Spokane officials say the van was parked overnight in St. John’s Cathedral’s parking lot where somebody punctured the gas tank with a screw driver. The tank was full at the time so Spokane Fire had to respond to clean up the hazardous material spill.
Executive director Madelyn Bafus said in a news release that repairing the van takes away from the funds they need to provide these services.
The van seats 15 people and is used to transport families to churches for meals and housing. It’s currently out of service until it can be repaired. Volunteers will transport families with their personal vehicles in the meantime.
