Applications Being Accepted for Car Give Away
This Thanksgiving will have new meaning to a Riverside family thanks to the generosity of local businesses. The deserving family will receive the gift of a car complete with one year of insurance, paid DMV fees, and a trunk full of groceries.
This Thanksgiving blessing is made possible by Ben Clymer’s The Body Shop and their partners AAA of Southern California, Enterprise Rent A Car, Martin Auto Color, PD Wholesale, Community Connect, and Riverside Mayor Rusty Bailey. This is the 5th year of this annual event.
To be eligible for the car giveaway the recipient must be a resident within the city limits of Riverside, eligible to be insured, must have a valid driver’s license and most of all, be truly in need of a car.
Community Connect will be collecting the applications. The staff at Ben Clymer’s will make the final selection from the applicant that most demonstrates the need and life change that a car would bring to their family. Applications can be submitted by potential recipients, a friend or family member, or by an agency. Applications must be received no later than Friday, November 8th by 5:00 PM.
The car will be given in a presentation set for Thursday, November 21st at 11:00 AM at Ben Clymer’s The Body Shop located at 12295 Magnolia Avenue in Riverside.
