Christmas in July was a great event for Wheels of Success. We talked about the benefits of car donation to Wheels of Success as well as receiving a donation to help fund repairing a vehicle.

About Donating A Car to Wheels of Success https://cm2wheels.neworg.com/Default.asp?PageNum=62
You receive the greatest tax advantage for your donation because we try not sell your car at auction but present it to a family so you can deduct the fair market value of the vehicle.
Brandon Gets His Wheels:
Vehicles for Veterans Recipient
Brandon is a true American hero. He is a
husband, father of a four year old, and as an infantryman with the US Army, served four tours on the front lines in Iraq. In honor of his service, the US Army has awarded him with its highest honors, decorations and medals for bravery and valor.
However, the physical toll of four years of combat has left Brandon partially deaf, and in need of double knee replacements. He also came home from his final tour with cancer, and severe PTSD.
Brandon is on the road to recovery and was referred to Wheels by the Veterans Administration, where he is not only receiving the care he needs, but had been offered a job to help other veterans.
Brandon received his “new to him” 2004 Lexus at the very end of June in honor of July 4th our Independence day and his. His wife is now able to work, his son can go to Day Care, and he is doing great in his new job. He has also decided to “pay it forward”, as one of Wheels newest and most enthusiastic volunteers.
Waiting for Wheels: Kaitlin’s Story
Wheels of Success has used the fictitious name “Kaitlin” in this article to protect her identity as a domestic violence survivor.
The first to sign up for a Wheels’ volunteer opportunity. even though she’s waiting for a vehicle. A hard worker with a determination to turn things around and rise above her homelessness, caused by a domestic violence situation, Kaitlin has recently been referred to Wheels by The Spring of Tampa Bay for a vehicle that will enable her to not only continue working full time, but attend school in the evenings. Her dream is to become a CNA.
With reliable and safe transportation, Kaitlin will now be able to complete her studies and begin her career as a CNA in a local retirement home or hospital. She says that the Wheels’ car is her key to success, and will help her to now complete her vision to “pay it forward.”
