A Message from our President:
For many families, “back to school” is a time of excitement – new friends and classrooms, and perhaps more free time for parents! All joking aside, “back to school” season can also be a time of extreme stress and anxiety for families without transportation.


Sincerely,
Martin "Marty" Schwartz
VFC Awarded 3 Cars to 3 Families TODAY!
Just in time for "back to school," we awarded three vehicles to three families at our facility in Halethorpe, MD earlier this morning!

It was an emotional day, but we're so happy to have helped these families start the 2019/2020 school year on the right foot! For those who rely on public transportation, a vehicle means more than just getting to-and-from work on time. It means parents can spend more time with their kids and it opens a world of opportunity for after-school activities like sports, art, music and dance. Think about it... where would your family "be" without a car?

Hear from two of today's recipients in these short, inspiring videos:
Amanda K. from Pasadena, MD

Thank You, Glen & Phyllecia!
Earlier this month we were visited by Glen and Phyllecia Laasmar of Glen Burnie , who donated their 2008 Chevy Equinox to our organization that will soon be awarded to a family in need.

What made their visit so special? This wasn't their first time donating a vehicle to VFC! Dollars raised through selling their first donated car at auction went directly back into our programs and services. Thank you, Glen and Phyllecia - we are so grateful for your support!
