"I just wanted to say that we are very grateful and blessed with the car. It has been very helpful. We managed to go to the grocery, to church, immunization appointment for my daughters, Ames Public Library, Ada Hayden Park, free meals pick up at Sawyer elementary school, etc. We are very thankful to the donor and Wheels for Work for that!"
"This car has been wonderful for my family. It runs smoothly. I am thankful and grateful for the help in getting me a car."
"It has led us to doing family activities, doctor appointments, being able to keep a job."
"Able to get kids picked up on time and getting to work on time."
"It is so wonderful to have independence back again. Without this program, I would still be struggling. Bless everyone who has helped my family."
"Able to visit parents and parents [grandparents] able to meet children [for the first time ever]. Making it easier to get to and from work as well."
"We have been able to get around with no problem and I am so grateful for the car. Thank you."
"She [the car] has been very wonderful. She has given us the opportunity to give back to the community that has given us a lot of help and support. We are blessed and grateful to have her, and thanks to you for that!"
These are just a few of the first-person accounts of the difference the Wheels for Work program is making in the lives of Story County families! Thanks to all who have donated their vehicles and the collaborative partners who make this program possible.
