Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations for our Car Giveaway! It was amazing to read all of the amazing stories of deserving families in our community.
When the Toyota Highlander first came into our shop, it needed a lot of work. The customer donated it to our shop so we could rebuild the vehicle and give it to a family in need. The certified technicians at Kenny’s Lakes Area Auto Experts added new brakes, suspension, drive shafts, belts, hoses, tires, and more… adding to about $5,000 in repairs.
We opened up the nominations to you – our customers and our community – to let us know about deserving families. We received 150 applications, each with an amazing story about people in our community who deserved this gift.
I went through each of the stories personally, and as you would expect, it was extremely hard to pick.
On August 19, we handed off the keys to Heidi Adrian!
For the past six months, Heidi has been caring for her special needs sister, Holly, after their mother was lost to breast cancer.
Thank you to Carol Hopkins, who stopped by to share the story with the Oakland Press News:
We are so honored to help Holly and Heidi stay on the roads!
