Godwin Motors used car donations Columbia,
Many of us have gone through the struggles of living paycheck to paycheck. It’s a difficult battle and can be overwhelming when you need to find a way to travel to and from work. Vehicles are expensive, especially on a limited budget. Our Godwin Motors family continuously strives to give back to the Columbia,
Kenya Jenkins was working at a fast food job and had to rely on friends and family to get her where she needed to go. That all changed on May 16th when Jenkins received a 2010 Dodge Avenger from the Cooperative Ministry’s Autos for Opportunities program. The car came from the team here at Godwin Motors, and we’ve already donated three cars to the program and plan to donate three more as part of our efforts to give back to people in need (you can see more about that mission on our community page). Jenkins, a mother of four, completed the application process and attended classes on financial sustainability, which made her eligible to receive the car.
Jenkins was extremely grateful for the car, and noted that she’ll be working toward getting her commercial driver’s license (CDL) so she can be a long-distance hauler.
If you’re interested in donating to Autos for Opportunities, you can get in contact with them at (803) 799-3853, ext. 650 or visit www.coopmin.org. There are currently close to 30 recipients who have completed the financial sustainability courses and who are eligible to receive a vehicle, so donations to Autos for Opportunities are greatly appreciated. Unreliable cars are sold at auction with 90 cents of every dollar benefitting services to the working poor and those in crisis from fires, flooding, emergency relocation, or illness.
