An Extra Special Thanksgiving

David Hoskinson was looking for a positive change in his life. He works as a truck driver, and it should take him 30 minutes by car to get to his job. Because he did not have a car, he sometimes had to hitchhike to work, or walk almost 3 hours to get there. 

He has a one-year-old and a two-year-old who live with their mother in Pasadena. David lives in a homeless shelter and is not able to see his kids often, his youngest child barely knows him. He used to work a cab job, which allowed him to see his children more often, but as a truck driver it is difficult. He never knows when exactly his workday will end. Sometime he has to walk the 3 hours home late at night.

David's car award from Vehicles for Change allows him to take care of his essential needs. He is now abe to see his kids more often and will finally be able to take them on trips to Baltimore. He also looks forward to bringing his children with him to church. This an extra special thanksgiving for David, who finally found the positive change he was looking for.

 A Holiday Message
Happy Holidays,

As we come upon the season of giving, we at Vehicles for Change humbly ask that you consider our organization as you plan your end-of-year charitable giving. Our mission is to empower families with financial challenges to achieve economic and personal independence through car ownership and technical training. Here are a few ways to support our meaningful mission:
  • Donate a car, a boat, or another vehicle to support our car award program.
  • Have your car serviced at our Full Circle Service Center, where all proceeds from our full-service garage support our organizational mission.
  • Make a financial contribution to VFC—click here to donate now!
  • Purchase our State tax credits to make your charitable contribution go even further. Businesses and individuals that donate to VFC can earn tax credits equal to 50% of the value of their cash contribution. And these tax credits are in addition to the deductions on both Federal and State taxes! To learn more send an email to Cassi Champion at
We could not carry out our important work in the community without the support we receive from our donors. Thank you for your continued support!
