Don and Ron’s Collision Repair Donates Vehicles to Deserving Woman
For the third time Don & Ron’s has worked with the Women’s Fund of Omaha to grant a “Recycled Ride” to a deserving woman.
In the fall of 2015, a client at Financial Hope Collaborative at Creighton University was the recipient of a 2007 Saturn Aura awarded at the Women’s Fund of Omaha’s Annual Fall Luncheon.
Nonprofit agencies in the metro area nominated women they felt would benefit from having a vehicle and the Women’s Fund selects the recipient each year.
The Cobalt Saturn was a salvage vehicle that was donated by State Farm Insurance.
