Ken Barrett Collision Heart in Batavia donates refurbished car to Oakfield mother

Submitted photo and press release:

Recently, a deserving Oakfield recipient experienced a life changing event – the presentation of a vehicle that would give him independence and the ability to work and care for his family.

This was thanks to the Ken Barrett Collision Center and the GEICO car donor, as well as the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program.

The presentation took place at the Ken Barrett Collision Center in Batavia.

The Deserved Recipient was selected by Community Action of Orleans & Genesee County. The recipient received a 2015 Chevy Trax.

As a hardworking single parent of a 7 year old, she works 36 hours a week to support her child and herself without any government support, including child benefit or housing.

Gifting a vehicle was no easy task for the recipient. She didn’t have a driver’s license and had many assignments to complete, including her five-hour course, practice time with her friends’ vehicles, and finally signing up and passing a road test.

The recipient aims to continue her education and become a surgical technician in a hospital or surgical center.

With a vehicle, your life and that of your son will certainly change for the better. The opportunity to continue their education and get a job outside of Oakfield is a big step for them.

Via Recycled Rides from the National Auto Body Council

This is a unique program where companies from all walks of life in the collision repair industry come together to repair vehicles and donate to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation.

Since the program began in 2007, members of the National Auto Body Council have donated more than 2,600 vehicles valued at more than $ 36 million. Other partners in the presentation of NABC Recycled Rides® were 1-800 Charity Cars.
