Santa awarded car keys to a domestic violence survivor who desperately needed transportation.

The Lincoln, NE mother of three received keys to a repaired and refurbished Chrysler Concorde as part of the “Recycled Rides” program.

“Recycled Rides” is a community service project where body shops and insurance companies partner to repair a salvage vehicle and give it to a deserving person who needs transportation to improve their lives.

The woman was nominated by Community Action of Lincoln and chosen by a “Recycled Rides” committee.  She was walking to work in sub-zero temperatures when she received the news that she had been selected to receive the car. She is currently a participant in Community Action’s Supportive Housing Program.

State Farm Insurance donated the salvage 2004 Chrysler Concorde.  Glenn’s CARSTAR in Lincoln repaired and refurbished the 2004 Chrysler Concorde.  Platinum sponsor Performance Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge/Ram of Lincoln donated many parts.

This is the first time that Glenn’s CARSTAR has partnered with Community Action on a Recycled Rides project. “Repairing this car has been a labor of love.  Our staff worked hard to make the donation a reality,“ Hillhouse said.

Hillhouse said other businesses who donated parts, services and cash to the Recycled Rides project were:   Audatex/Auto Watch, Cintas, Firestone Complete Auto Care, Ryan Glock of Inspro Insurance, J.D. Casey Paint, Mr Amoto, National Auto Body Council and Serendipities Cupcakes.

Glenn’s CARSTAR partnered with Safe Kids Lancaster County for a free car seat check event.  Child safety technicians checked 19 seats that evening and provided one family with a car seat.
