TAMPA, FL — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Wheels of Success, Inc., is pleased to present its 1000th car to a deserving veteran eligible through our Vehicles for Veterans program, established in 2009 by State Farm.
The presentation will take place at GTE Financial Headquarters, 711 E. Henderson Avenue in Ybor City on Monday April 15, 2019 at 10:30 AM. The public is welcome to help celebrate this milestone with Wheels of Success, and more importantly, with Kenneth W., a U.S. Army Veteran and single grandfather who is raising his four grandchildren. Employed at James A. Haley Veteran Hospital in Tampa, he needs a larger car for his own family “troops”. The new-to- him-vehicle was generously donated by repeat car donor John Kelly. The car repairs were funded by GTE Financial. The car donor, John Kelly, also contributed to the repairs of the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country, further ensuring a reliable and functional way for Kenneth W. to care for his family and get to work.
What better day to celebrate our 1,000th car and our car donors than on Tax Day – if you had donated your vehicle to us last year you could be deducting the fair market value, not auction price!
Said Susan Jacobs, Founder and CEO, “When I had this vision 15 years ago to help working families continue working through ownership of a reliable vehicle, I hoped we could affect many lives in many ways, and here we are at our 1000th car helping to keep so many families working and maintaining their family’s self-sufficiency. We look forward to the next 1000 happening even faster!”
