Auto Care Clinic awards it’s 17 vehicle to a needy family

The Front Royal Auto Care Clinic’s Cars Changing Lives program just awarded it’s 17 vehicle to a family in need.

The program, with help from the Phoenix Project and a donation from Round Hill United Methodist Church, is able to help a young mother provide for her family.

Auto Care Clinic owner Bill Long says despite 17 vehicles given away the program is not where they would like it to be.

Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) working by appointment only has made the process more difficult and set the program back.

If you have a vehicle to donate or know of someone in need visit carschanginglives.com.

Cars Changing Lives is a 501 (c) (3) organization.
