For millions of Americans, the availability of public transportation is the determining factor in their ability to access jobs and any care they require. For a lot of those people, they either live outside the range of public transit or the places they need to go to are outside of public transit zones, forcing them to miss those opportunities. Forcing them to have to walk for miles to get where they need to be.
Why do we do what we do?
Life is not always predictable. Everyday people unexpectedly get sick, lose their job, or have their car break down on them. Most people do not expect those things to happen. Cars 4 Heroes is here to help people through those times by giving them transportation so that they can get back on their feet and turn their lives around. Our founder, Terry Franz, will tell people, “Our program is not called fix my life, we are just here to give them a tool to help them fix their lives.”
Every year, we give hundreds of cars to families and people in need. For some, it is a wheelchair van that allows them to take their wheelchair bound family member out for the first time in years and for others it is just a simple car that can get them to work and doctors’ appointments.
If our organization did not exist, would someone invent it?
There are other charities that sound very similar to ours, but we are different in one major way. The cars we give away are donated. We do not take in donated cars, sell them and then buy other cars to give away. Now, not every car we get is road worthy or need major repairs and those that are not are sold with the proceeds going towards fixing other cars and supporting events.
Cars 4 Heroes cannot exist without the many people around us. From local radio stations such as 101.1 The Fox or tow companies like Redline Tow, they all are critical to helping us help those who gave so much for us.
