Charity Cars in the News: Keys to a New Life for Victims of Domestic Violence
Grand Rapids, MI– Victims of Domestic Violence all across the state of Michigan will be receiving a set of keys to cars to help them get a fresh start…An escape from the violence! Local Auto Value and Bumper To Bumper Certified Automotive Service Centers in cities and towns throughout Michigan have banded together for one very worthwhile cause, to help victims of domestic violence in their home towns with the final thing they need to start their new lives – reliable transportation! These repair shops are donating their labor, as well as the necessary replacement parts, to refurbish automobiles sorely needed by victims who have escaped a domestic abuse environment and now need financial help in the form of basic, reliable transportation – but cannot afford to provide it themselves. The group of over 60 shop owners have joined forces with the Original 1-800 Charity Cars organization (Charity Cars, Inc. a 501-C-3 Non-profit charity, FED ID #59-3362703) in a huge project now underway; they are actively seeking, securing, and refurbishing these vehicles, to be given away to 35 qualified recipients at a grand award ceremony to be held at 3:00 pm, March 29, 2008 at the DeVos Place, 303 Monroe Ave. NW, Grand Rapids, MI.
