A Nicholasville school needs $30,000.

Warner Elementary School wants to buy a special van for Braden Petrucci.

He's a seven-year-old with cerebral palsy.

Right now he doesn't have a van that would accommodate his wheelchair.

Teachers say a van would make a world of difference for Braden and his mom.

Angela McKenzie teaches at the school and says, "It would mean so much. Right now she has to break this wheelchair down every time she puts Braden in or out of the car. And she has a little Toyota Corolla. And she has to break it down and put it in the trunk of the Corolla."
