— A Raleigh nonprofit is providing a vehicle to a Garner woman whose two children were burned in an apartment fire.

The Aug. 22 fire at Denise Powell's Timber Drive duplex also destroyed the family's possessions.

Powell is living at the Ronald McDonald House in Chapel Hill while her children, Michael Smith, 3, and Jasmine Smith, 2, recover from third-degree burns at UNC Hospitals.

“My family is so grateful to Wheels4Hope and so many others who are caring for us during this difficult time. Please pray for my children and our family," Powell said in a statement.

The car is being providing by Wheels4Hope, a volunteer-driven non-profit.
